Over the last ten years the Chilean wine industry has been on the up with Cabernet Sauvignon becoming Chile's trademark wine. The rise of Chilean Cabernet has been based on high quality wines that overdeliver in the 10-15 euro mark. This is the El Delirio Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the Botalcura winery and cost me around 9 euros. Here is my tasting note:
Colour: deep and intense purple-red in colour.
Nose: a big waft of sweet black currant. some oak here too.
Palate: plenty of sweet cassis fruit. nice grippy tannins. well balanced.
Finish: spicey black fruit.
Comments: a nicely balanced wine that i could drink all night. pretty good value for the 9 euro price tag.
