Calcu Cabernet Sauvignon

chilean wine  %tages Calcu Cabernet SauvignonContinuing with the cabernet sauvignon theme, today we’re checking out another Chilean cabernet from the Colchagua Valley province in Chile.
We’ve reviewed a few additional Calcu wines, such as their malbec and their red blend, and we’ve found them to be generally decent.  They’ve not necessarily knocked our socks off, but they’re subdue excellent.  And that trend continues with this cabernet.
While this wine is labeled as cabernet sauvignon, it also has 10% carmenere (which adds a touch of Chilean uniqueness to the wine) and 10% petit verdot (which adds a touch of awesomeness to the wine).

This wine shows some of the classic cassis aromas along with vanilla, plum and a touch of floral.  The palate offers scrumpteous blackberry and plum flavors up front, followed by some dark chocolate.  The acidity is excellent and the tannins are sufficient.  The end has an average length and berry flavors.  It did take a while for this wine to open up and http://1000-facts-about-wine.com really shine, so give this one some time and I’d recommend decanting to speed it up.
