2010 Private Edition Red Blend
Chile: Cachapoal Valley
The Secret Street
Today’s fantastic 90 point blend hails from the Cachapoal Valley in the Cachapoal province of central Chile.
From Valle Secreto Vineyards, today’s 2010 Private Edition Red Blend is a delicious, richly layered blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. While this wine has deep and concentrated flavors, it possesses wonderful balance.
Production is limited to just ten thousand cases, less than 200 of which are imported into the United States.
Please accept our sincerest recommendation for this wonderful, conversation-worthy wine. Hurry, though. Quantity is very limited.
Pretty crimson hues with bright edges. When swirled, the wine clings to the glass.
Dark fruit of blackberry, dark dried cherry and stewed plum lead the way. Baker’s chocolate, sweet cedar, subtle clove and roasted pepper round out the nose.
Concentrated stewed black fruits of black plum, black cherry and young blackberry. Underneath, flavors of cocoa dust and baker’s chocolate meld with hints of clove, cinnamon and subtly toasted oak.
Long and slightly drying, with pronounced black fruit that slowly gives way to spice and subtle woodsy notes.
Enjoy this very versatile wine with a spice-rubbed rack of lamb or a New York strip. It would even pair well with a Thanksgiving feast!
