Bodegas Alina Emblema Cabernet Sauvignon: Wine Woman 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.

Callia Signos Cabernet Sauvignon

NEW BLEND: Never judge a book by its cover. Awesome Argentine Fruit, warmth & silkiness, warmer than a Chilean; less herbal. A lovely of surprise… development, once opened was unexpected. Day 2 was sublime. Simply had to purchase a further 8 cases to lock in the price for a while. “Delicious”, my wife adds, “this is exactly what I like!” Job done.

Miguel Torres Chile Hemisferio Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense ruby colour. Exquisite aroma of wild berries and spices over a rich background of leather and liquorice. The fruit tannins and vegetable notes stand out on the palate.

If I am not mistaken, there is a dollop of Carmenère in this Cabernet Sauvignon and a fine blend that makes it too. The luminosity is there and the sweet sweet spicy notes.
