Los Vascos Grande Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


This is the second more recent vintage of a Los Vascos that has been disappointing.  I have some of this producer's earlier wines in my cellar such was my faith at the time.  The 2013 has diffuse and spiky aromatics that are simple in expression.  The palate is medium bodied and improves with air.  A disappointing wine that lacks interest for a producer of this calibre.  (Alc: 14%, Region: Colchagua, Chile, Rating: Acceptable, Drink: now, Tasted: Jan, 2017)
