Viña San Diego De Puquillay 2007 Encierra - 90-91pts
Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $37.99 (BC)
Date Tasted: January 1st, 2011
Tasting Notes: For lovers of “big reds” this is your wine. A highly concentrated, silky-smooth blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah, 3% Carmenere and 2% Petit Verdot. The intense nose of dark berries, orange peel, vanilla, slate and espresso aromas spill out of the glass. The dry, easy-drinking palate doesn’t challenge with complex layers, but does reward with focused, concentrated fruit followed by savoury oak flavours and round tannins. A very “big” wine which, despite the high alcohol (15%,) is well balanced. Drink 2011-2015.
