2005 Santa Ema Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon: Pretty decent for the price.


july 1, 2009: victoria had the day off again and so she made pizza with a topping of mozzarella, diced tomatoes and spicy italian sausage. the pizza was relatively good considering it was a tomato explosion. greg said the pairing was tasty. he described the wine as a good cabernet with a good tannic nose. the flavor is smooth and not very acidic. victoria said it started out gently, giving off a light impression. this cab had a cherry flavor with slight tannins, and it was mildly acidic, but not in a terribly obtrusive way. we'd both get it again. this is from the maipo valley of central valley in chile. 14 percent alcohol. $8.99 with 10-percent discount at big red liquors in bloomington, ind.
