Today's Wine Tasting Note

Luis Felipe Edwards 1995 Colchagua (Chile) Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva ($12.99) This one came well recommended, and I'm pleased to say that the rave I heard was borne out in the glass. Does anyone know of this Chilean property? It was a new one on me. Very dark reddish-purple. Ripe cassis and spicy oak aromas with herbal notes. Full, juicy black-fruit flavor, big and ripe, built on a firm structure of lemony acidity; tannins are present but almost fully cloaked by all the fruit. Remarkable wine. I'm amazed that I haven't heard any buzz about this label. Importer: William Grant & Sons Inc., NYC. (Sept. 20, 1997)

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
