Altaïr Vineyards & Winery Sideral 2002

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Vintage: 2002
Type: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: Chile – Rapel Valley

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is a collaboration with Chile and St. Emilion.

Big full flavours of prunes and black fruits. Nice highlights of oak with strong, but not overpowering tannins. Could use some more time in the cellar.

Concha Y Torro Winemaker’s Lot 2008

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Vintage: 2008
Type: Carmenere
Country: Chilie – Rapel Valley

I tried this wine in Edinburgh, mainly because I had enjoyed the Diablo Carmenere (also owned by Toro) that I had tried. This wine was great. A deep purple colour, chocolate on the nose and dark fruit and a hint of coffee on the palate. It was quite strong, so I would recommend it with food.
