Errazuriz "Don Maximano" Estate Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 wine review by (PB)

Black cherry hue with aromas of ripe black cherry-berry fruit rising from the table. Hints of cedar and eucalyptus with oak touches. Nice.

Palate: Fairly soft with good first impression of baker's chocolate with tight fruit on solid structure and a finish of burnt wood/smoke/charcoal. Needs air.

With breathing, the bouquet takes on a creamy note with cherry.

Palate: Sweet fruit, a tad hot, tannins that are a little chewy. At $20, this was a bit disappointing but needs a few more years on the shelf to be fair. Raise a glass of a ready to drink wine!
