Palo Alto Reserva, Maule Valley 2008

Tasted 20/11/2010, about £8 UK retail (e.g. Tesco). Another excellent everyday Chilean wine from Concho Y Toro's mid-level portfolio. A cab sauv / carmenere / syrah blend from young vines. Ruby colour, with blackberries and spice on the nose, oak shows through on the palate, tannins need a little longer to soften. Lovely dark fruits in the mouth. Good now but may be at its best in 2011. 16/20
