2005 Concha y Toro Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon
This Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is a true bang for your buck. The best five dollar bottle I've ever bought. It's a light ruby color and expresses the Chilean terroir with it's minerality and sweet earthy tones. Scents of spicy leather with a hint of black pepper, flavors of cherries, raspberries, and cracked pepper, light-bodied with good acidity and a pleasent finish. I will definetly be exploring more Chilean and Argentine wines. I think there's real value in South America for viticulture and wine production.
