Errazuriz Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Aconcagua Valley, 2009

Tasted 08/11/10. c. £8 Waitrose, Tesco, etc.
One of my favourite producers...this wine was one of Decanter's 'Wines of the Year' (Dec 2010 edition), and justifiably so. Bright purple with toasted new oak on the nose. Initially closed but opened up in the glass, good structure and lovely youthful, blackcurrant fruit. Tannins firm - needs another year. At the risk of repetition where my Chilean reviews are concerned, it is 'excellent value for money'. 16.5/20, from 2011.
