Calcu 2005 Redwine Valle De Colchagua


The bottom line is, there are many areas throughout the world that make exceptional wines, but none that make better wines for the value, than Chile, Period. So, with that, I'm going to get into the wine I'm drinking tonite. This south-american gem I'm drinking to is the
Calcu 2005 Redwine Valle De Colchagua. On the nose, I pick up wild
cherry, hints of chalky vanilla, and nice milk chocolate. Something
else that comes through when smelling this wine, is green herbaceous
notes and earthy green pepper with hints of plum, which undoubtly
came from the graceful Carmenere grape in this wine. And with that I
feel I've smelled enough of this wine, so, what I taste in this bottle
is wild cherry, plum and cassis on the initial attack.
There are also heavy tannins well blended into this wine throughout
the mid to the finish, which says a lot about the wine maker.
On the back sides of the palate I also loved the cocoa bean and
long finish of wild cherry. I love wine, and what I love more is wine
I can get at a low price, this is an area that is under the radar
for quality wines, although it should be considered an old wine
area, with quality old vines. So check out Chile, drink and enjoy.

P.S. The blend on this wine is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cab. Franc
and 20% Carmenere.
