Got a few wines from The Thomas Collective, the folks behind Wines of Chile. Tasted one today.
2009 Koyle Riserva Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Colchagua, Chile
Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% ABV. The nose is fruit and wood, with a little must, but not so much that you think it’s corked. Chocolate covered cherries that have been in a cedar chest in the basement (which isn’t bad, mind you). Finish is astringent, though, making the wine off balance. That’s unusual, because they usually send excellent examples. I wouldn’t search this out. OK.
Price: Unknown, this was a sample.
