Top ten wines in the US Press

19th June, 2014 by Richard Ross

Tacora Cabernet Sauvignon-Carmenere, Colchagua Valley, Chile 2010

tacoraGil Lempert-Schwarz in the Las Vegas Review Journal goes to Chile for his wine of the week, with 85% Cabernet and 15% Carmenere. Gil tells us that on the palate … “there is an immediate big, full-bodied mouth-feel with concentrated wild cherries, pepper-laced and spicy blackberries, huckleberries, bell peppers, massive phenol-laden structure, earthy minerals and oak references. The midpalate is highly affected by the liqueurlike cherry and elderberry fruit with notes of sloe fruit, herbs and earthy minerals and then the bombastic finish sets in lasting for a full minute with yet more licorice root, star anise and wood. That is quite a glass of wine!”

Price: $11.99
