Los Andes Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Wine of the Month Club, $18.99 retail Los Andes Cab Sauv 2011


Aaron: The full oaky nose of this cab also features some black currant and tobacco prior to unraveling in a very smooth, mild flavor.  I was surprised at how gentle this wine was for the region.  Any spice dissipates quickly with most of the flavor.  Some cherries and raspberry are mangled with crispy dried vegetables for some mild complexity but I wish it lingered a bit longer.  90 points

Teri: I loved the beautiful ruby red color of this wine with its strawberry smell. Flavors of bright cherry, strawberry, and subtle spice with a medium body make the wine not to overpowering but flavorful and noticeable. Strong earthy roots of this Chilean red gives it great flavor that would pair well with many foods. 90 points
