Oveja Negra 2006 wine review by (BP)


This is a Chilean blend of Cabernet Franc and Carmenere. The hue of this wine whose name means "Black Sheep" is black cherry in tone with some garnet depth. Mineral notes highlight a lighter medium red berry thrust in the nose.

Palate is spicy with bready front and coarse flavors that are tight and unresolved with a bitter finish.

With air, there are musty notes with earthy tones and white pepper on the palate. Even at $10 I just didn't care for this wine; the style or the blend. Pass on this puppy!

Loved the wine - i had it on several occasions - i introduced it to my friends and they loved it =
easy on the taste buds and it gives you such a warm sensation when it is going down - will recommend it to anyone.
go Chile

Amazing wine, drinking it in Ireland and friends seems to agree.

The blogger checked out the NY Times article and doesn't quite get the intended connection except somehow implying that I bagged the wine because it is not pricey. In fact--the reason our blog is one of the tops on the internet is precisely because we specialize in inexpensive wines. the great majority of our wines are under $20 and most are around the $10 price point. So the insinuation doesn't quite connect. It is certainly possible that the wine I reviewed was corked although it didn't seem so; my review stands with 30 plus years to back it up. Raise a glass.
