Pepperwood Grove Cabernet Sauvignon
Valle Central, Chile
This wine smells of sandalwood and blueberries. It’s medium-bodied, and the taste of wood is the first on my tongue. It’s a dry wine with mild fruit that is more prominently plum than the blueberry I smell, though there are notes of both. This wine has a cool palette with spice so mild I want to call it chive.
This Cabernet Sauvignon won’t stick with you, but it’s a nice wine that’s easy on the taste buds.
Other Bloggers’ Thoughts:
This dark, ruby-colored Cabernet from Chile opens with a smoky oak and mild black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry and black raspberry blend. The finish is dry and its moderate oak tannins are manageable and a bit sticky.
