2004 Castillo de Molina Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

This is another Chilean wine that I have just opened and I am surprised at the consistent quality of the wines coming out of Chile. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a very typical nose reminicent of left-bank Bordeaux wines but without any barnyard or bandaid. The nose shows notes of coffee, dark chocolate, blackberry, and when it warms up cherries. The flavors are of oak, leather, and chocolate, with a slightly hot mid-palate that doesn't last into the finish. The finish is long and soft leaving a fantastic flavor linger on your palate. I would rate it 87 points and agree with Wine Spectator Magazine.

Just found you via BE and have added you to my list. Look forward to future reviews. I typically drift towards the oakier cabs from Napa.

Hello,
I have been reading your blog for the past few weeks and have really taken an interest in what you have to say. I look forward to the new posts each time they come out. I am writing because I thought you might find some interest in this. A few days ago I stumbled upon this video blog http://tv.winelibrary.com/ and really enjoyed it and thought you and your readers would too. Keep up the great work and keep the posts coming!

The answer to your question is because He is God He is not constrained by time as we are so the wine enjoyed was 1999 EXP Syrah.

Can't understand how this wine (Castillo de Molina Cab Sauv) could appeal to anyone with a palate. It has great body but flavours masked by tobacco leaf and oak. Other wise your wine blog is well setup and concise. First time so maybe we can agree on other wines - will follow you for awhile. Cheers, WinoWill
