Chris Keays joins Ron and Bruce to taste three terrific Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Chile. On the tasing menu we have:
Clos des Fous: Grillos Cantores Cabernet-Sauvignon $22.05 CAD
Odfjell Armador Valle Central Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (10%) 2017 $19.65 CAD
Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Gran Reserva 2017 $20.00
We enjoyed all three wines and can recommend them all. If we had to pick one of the bunch it would be the Odjfell, especially after it spent an hour opening up (do yourself a favour and let it decant for an hour) – Bonus: it’s also the least expensive.
