Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Colchagua,  Chile 


My Rating 81 Points.   

Price $12. 


Dirty ruby in color with a ruby rim.

Extremely earthy on the nose, with black currants, cherries, plums, green pepper, asparagus, broccoli, leather, earth, pencil shavings, forest floor, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, raspberries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, forest floor, smoke, green pepper, red candy, dark chocolates and black pepper.

Tart medium finish with firm tannins and sour cherries.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, is a nice everyday red, but very young and needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature. Better with food, right now, like BBQ Meats or roasts.
I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

To me, this is too earthy, with lots of vegetable notes, it’s like having a salad…

14% alcohol by volume.
