Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

Country of origin: Chile
Wine appellation: Colchagua Valley
Vintage: 2006
Alcohol content: 14.0%
Color: dark garnet red
Bouquet: expressive, black currant jam, black chocolate, vanilla, not overpowered, still feels some acidity
Taste: medium to full body, canned fruit profile witn the coffee and wood element, all quite nice and austere, not bold not round not jammy, yes there is quite a lot of oak, but dryer and less less vanilla profile, longer finish
Overall score: 4+7.5+11.5+7+7+50=87
Price: CZK 290
Stopper: single piece cork
I am sure I tasted the wine before, but that is the case (cannot find the reference) if u r not meticulously taking the tasting notes and then u r stuck with search engine (but my visual memory surpases the one of the fulltext search for sure). Very interesting wine indeed. The wine is at the peak and feels somwhere between Old and New World, very less vanilla, rather coffee profile. It is also fairly balanced among all the sensory cahracteristics.
