February 2015

The Beverage Institute’s Tastings.com was impressed with the latest offerings from Chilean winery Chilensis awarding two Golds and a Silver to it’s sister producer Oveja Negra (which is out of the Maule Valley):

 

GOLD MEDAL/BEST BUY

90 pts    Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Dark ruby color. Bright, fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of berry tart, spiced nuts, and minty herbs with a silky, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of cranberry chutney and cedar with well-integrated tannins and light oak. A well balanced and nicely spicy red that will cover a lot of bases.

 

GOLD MEDAL/BEST BUY

90 pts    Chilensis Reserva Pinot Noir 2013
Dark ruby black color. Bright aromas and flavors of dried cherry, spiced jerky, smoked nuts, and toffee with a silky, bright, dryish medium body and an interesting, medium-length finish that presents touches of pickled beet, honey, cedar, and minerals with crunchy tannins. A nicely layered pinot with subtlety and finesse.

 

SILVER MEDAL/HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

88 pts    Oveja Negra Reserva Sauvignon Blanc-Carmenere 2014
Silvery straw color. Rich aromas and flavors of sliced green pepper, gooseberry jam, grapefruit, and honeyed rainier cherry with a silky, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-length finish with notes of straw with no oak. A very crisp and balanced sauvignon blanc with nice varietal character.
