Yali Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 (Colchagua, Chile)

Tasted 24/06/12, 14% ABV, screw cap closure. Great little Bordeaux blend from a quality-driven, up-and-coming winery. Widely available in the UK for about £8. I didn't realise I had this tucked away for a couple of years, so it's now 4 years old and just right. Young vines, but great cab sauv character of ripe berry fruits in the mouth and cassis and pencil box on the nose, balanced by some firm tannins. Great value 'luncheon wine'. Excellent with strongly flavoured Portuguese salted cod! 15.5 / 20, drink now.
