ChiLENSiS Colchagua Valley Chile 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, $9.99, 89+ points, appeared a slightly murky purple/red with flashes of maroon and a clear rim ring.
A striking blueberry aroma was enhanced with cedar and plum notes.
The medium-plus body carried good acidity with comfortably moderate tannin.
Rich flavors of blueberries, blackberries, coffee, black tea, tobacco, and cola notes were very good.
Finished fair on the trailing palate with a well integrated 13.5% alcohol and a hint of watermelon rind.
One of the best value Cabernet Sauvignon wines I've tasted.
I bought this one at the Londonderry Market Basket.
