Vina Maipo Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 wine review by (PB)

Purple hue with some Cabernet aromas with a slightly stinky note with black pepper and some veggies.

Steely front with light varietal flavors but thin, and watery, harsh and all around yucky. Now sure I paid around $8 for a magnum at Sam's Club but still, you can find bargains like this from Chile but this isn't one of them.

Still, this would be the wine of choice where you are entertaining a passel of people who have no clue about wine because even as bad as this review is, this wine is drinkable.

I am always looking for a great wine from an unknown winery. I enjoyed Robert Mondavi
in the early 80s when it was unknown. What Mondavi sells now for top dollar was under
$10 when they were unknown.

I just finished my first bottle of Vina Maipo Cabernet Sauvignon 2007. It was GREAT from the first glass to last. Only $9/1.5L at Sam’s. I bought 6 more bottles. This wine will be much more expensive as it becomes better known. This is FAR better than most wines selling for $20/750mL
