This Chilean Corral del Sol Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is our pick for this Friday evening. It is cold and dark, but I have a pot of soup on the stove and a loaf of bread in the oven, and an afghan (and Trigger) on my lap so we are warm, cozy, and happy.
I was very pleased to taste this wine and discover that it is a real treasure from Chile. On the nose is spicy fruit and leather. On the palate is a smooth combination of cherries, vanilla, and pine. The finish is dry with a hint of black tea.
A Friday night with this Chilean Cab is a great way to end the week. (To our son Tony, in case you read this, I miss you!)
