Another post transferred from Blogarhythms. Given the date (Feb. 2010), I’m sure this is no longer available. But it sets things into perspective – for my blog, for my tasting history, and for any future experiences with the same wine from another vintage.
Did I mention that I’ve been keeping tasting notes for several years now? Don’t get concerned; I won’t share them all here. But I thought this particular selection would be of interest to others like me looking for good values in wine. I had this quite recently, too.
Vineyard: Sunrise (by Concha Y Toro)
Appellation: Central Valley – Chile
Notes: Nice apple and lemon with a hint of grass. It was surprisingly flaccid in the mid-palate for me. Perhaps I should give it another go just to be sure I wasn’t having an off day. Not a particularly bad wine; in fact not at all offensive. Just not a very interesting wine for my taste. Of course, given the very reasonable price, you could do worse.
