The Palo Alto Reserva is from Chile’s Maule Valley and is a blend of three grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Syrah.
Available from Dunnes Stores, frequently on special offer, this is a real find if you can get it at sale price.
Taste-wise, what’s it like?
Cabernet brings the blackcurrant, Syrah adds a touch of spice and the Carmenere rounds it all off with a great mocha nose and finish. Throw in some vanilla, hints of tobacco and that just about covers it.
Full bodied, very smooth, and round.
A very classy drop.
