Viña Ventisquero 2006 "Root: 1" Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($10.00)
Dark garnet, deep reddish-purple at the center. Very distinct cassis (blackcurrant) aroma with a fruity back note of red plums and a whiff of fennel. Mouth-filling and ripe, fresh and juicy fruit flavors follow the nose, nicely shaped by tart, mouth-watering acidity. US Importer: (Jun 28, 2008)

FOOD MATCH: Good with red meat or grilled chicken; fine with hamburgers made from local natural ground beef.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
