2011 La Pincoya Cabernet Sauvignon


Picked this Chilean wine up at our local wine store and very glad we did.

La Pincoya is southern Chile’s goddess of the sea. Those that have seen her say she is a beautiful young woman with long red hair. She usually appears wearing sea algae and walking or dancing by the seashore. She comes to sailors to guide them when they get lost or stranded.

This was a great wine the minute we pulled the cork. We didn’t let it breath long before drinking, but it can only continue to improve if you give it the chance. Very typical deep red color with black cherry and a hint of eucalyptus. This is definitely one you should pick up when you see it and under $20.

The XPRT wine review rating 92 out of 100.
