cachapoal

This wine was a blend of three grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Syrah. It came from the Cachapoal Valley, which is the heart of Chile's wine country as well as its agricultural center, according to the Encyclopedia Brittanica. The wine had a medium body but packed a punch that wasn't exactly strong, but almost spicy. I sometimes thought I tasted cinammon. The wine was delicious and exciting (if you could call a wine that). With every taste I picked up new flavors, each one more pleasantly perplexing than the last. Unfortunately, no research could turn up anything regarding what vinyard it came from or even who the winemaker was. Finding it could be kind of tricky.
