Bodegas Alina Emblema Cabernet Sauvignon: Wine Man Pick

Bodegas Alina Emblema Cabernet Sauvignon

First sampled in 2011: an instant hit. Staggeringly good value. An every day red wine of…forest berries & spices on a rich background of leather & liquorice. Sweet healthy tannins. Vegetal nuances typical of this variety at this price point and above and yet (Still) retailing elsewhere for around ¥138. That’s us, I guess: Generous to a fault. Grab a case; watch it evolve for very little outlay.

Bodegas Alina Emblema Sauvignon Blanc: Wine Man Pick

Bodegas Alina Emblema Sauvignon Blanc

BRILLIANT!!!! 2014 vintage is here. Fresh & powerful Chilean White with plenty of proper zingy acidity. A strong fresh floral wine with an intriguing mix of exotic fruits (passion fruit, grapefruit). The medium full body is a silken palate and exquisitely intense, with a supportive acidic structure and a nice finish. Our top selling white for the last 36 months (Dec 2015), sold elsewhere online at 138. Ouch.
