- Category: Uncorked Tonight
(April 29, 2017) ... The urge to open a couple of 2004 South American Cabs tonight struck me as a good idea to see how the would fare against one another:
Chakana 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon - Argentina ... Tricky little black plastic cork - oxidized - prune-y - funky finish - wow this wine sucked so bad.
La Playa 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Block Selection - Chile ... The Chileans got it right by putting a natural cork in the bottle, when first open the wine was all dried fruit and acidity, that acidity settles with time and some cedary notes begin to play with the dried fruit ... It's ok but not exciting.
