Old World style meets New World value. This bottle is made in Chile by Domaine Barones de Rothschild, king of the elite Bordeaux Lafite ($500 a bottle for their 2006 release). This is a pretty cool deal, since you pay South American prices for a wine grown and blended by the best. There is some warm toasty oak to provide body and noteable tannins that make it food-friendly. I would definitely drink it with a filet, a burger or even alone. The French influence kept the wine from going too big, like may Chilean reds (fruitbombs), and instead decided on a smooth blend of quality fruit. This is a great wine for sitting in front of the fireplace.

What a fantastic and versatile wine! At first this wine is too tannic and closed—if you give it 10 minutes it’ll open up and taste much better. This wine is a medium-bodied cabernet so it’s lighter and fruity compared to fuller cabernets. This quality makes it an easier drinker and also a more versatile pairing wine. I enjoyed it with some black pepper skirt steak and it was fantastic. Post-dinner it still tasted great, even if those tannins were yearning for something delicious to offset them.
