VENTISQUERO 2010 "GREY" CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Again, the “Grey” Gran Riserva tier from Ventisquero show well above their price point. It’s rare to say any Cab under $20 requires aging, but this has really benefited from an extra year in bottle. The 2009 was a huge hit in our store and the 2010 is similarly impressive. The entry here shows blackcurrant and brambly currant leaf character in a classic Cabernet vein mixed with blueberry, savory herbal spice and warm chocolaty oak.

Two years ago we discovered the Viña Ventisquero line from Chile. At the time we wrote, “WOW, what a lineup-- pure, multi-layered wines at unbeatable values,” adding several wines across many price points. At a recent trade show, we tasted the full line again and knew it was time to buy up, but this time we were most impressed with “the best of the best” selections from the “Grey” Gran Riserva tier and a few prestige bottlings. Ventisquero owns over 4,000 acres across top growing areas in Chile, from Casablanca, Maipo, Apalta, and more. The “Grey” wines represent the best blocks in the best vineyard from Ventisquero’s vast holdings. Winemaker Felipe Tosso is a star in Chile, but for these higher tier wines benefit from the added assistance of consultant John Duval, famed as the man entrusted to make Penfolds Grange for over 20 years. This collection is impressive and drinks well above their price tags that seem downright modest in the American market.
