Top drop under $20… Cabernet from Chile

2015 Chingol Adventurous Bird Cabernet Sauvignon 12.5% ABV $11.99   3.5 stars

Fresh, smooth, spicy and soft, this Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon was made from grapes grown in the Valle Central and it’s a great little intro’ to what red wine is all about, thanks to its medium body and firm but balanced moderate tannins. These provide structure and a little interesting rigidity to the wine’s texture, without being overly challenging. Its black fruit aromas and spice clearly put Cabernet Sauvignon’s personality forward and it has a medium finish. Good value for money. Screwcap closure – great.
