I’ve had a number of very good Chilean cabs lately. This one is dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some ripe juicy red cherries along with some subtle green herbaceous notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice bright acidity, tartness and some nice mild tannins. I would give it an 88-89, which for the price is a good deal.

Toro de Piedra Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 — VINTAGES#: 39362 Style – Full-bodied & Firm
The Colchagua Valley has established itself as a premium-quality region for Cabernet, and little wonder with examples like this continually reinforcing the valley’s reputation. Dark and impressive on the nose with cassis, baking spice and smoke prominently placed. Ripe and structured without sacrificing vibrancy. Enjoy this incredible value wine with grilled meats.
