Stewed-fruit nose with a hint of violets. Rich and ripe, with nice concentration
Corralillo Winemakerís Blend 2006;
Wineanorak, mei 2009,
Dark cherry and blackberry fruit nose with some spice and a distinctive
meatiness. There's also a hint of Chilean character (dark rubbery edge)
but this is quite subtle. The palate has sweet dark fruit with a lovely
meaty, earthy savouriness, reminding me of a good Southern Rhone red.
Finishes firm and tannic. I like the fact that this isn't just about sweet
Robert Parker, wine advocate 182, april 2009
The 2006 Winemakerís Blend Corralillo is 80% Merlot with the balance Malbec
and Cabernet Franc. Aromas of spice box, tobacco, espresso, and blackcurrant
are Bordeaux-like. This leads to a structured wine with plenty of ripe
tannin, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring
and drink this promising effort through 2021.

Wineanorak, februari 2008,
Sweet, pure, ripe dark fruits nose with liqueur-like richness. Bold and
full with deliciously fresh ripe palate showing good tannin and acidity.
Fresh, pure and structured.
