VEO Grande Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 review by (PB)

This Colchagua (Chile) wine is a beautiful cranberry red with herbal tones and green peppers galore. With half an hour of breathing, the fruit rises over the green peppers with cocoa hints.

In the mouth the wine is a bit hot but with some varietal flavor of dark fruit and cocoa. This is another wine by the Chilean Errazuriz (see entry on the VEO Chardonnay for more info). This wine runs under $7 at Sam's Club and it's O.K. for the price. Raise a glass but don't expect to be wowed.

A terrific wine for the price.

I bought this wine at Sam's Club in Charlottesville, VA as a Christmas gift for a friend. My daughter-in-law opened it by mistake, and I didn't have the heart to tell her it was a gift for someone, so we drank it. We both loved it! I've been trying to find it in Richmond, VA but haven't been able to find it. It's a good wine at a good price!
