Vina Requingua Cabernet Sauvignon Toro de Piedra 2003, 86 points

2003 Vina Requingua Cabernet Sauvignon Toro de Piedra

(Chile, Central Valley, Curico Valley)

Boysenberry, black currant and cinnamon with red pepper on the nose.  Not much fruit on the palate.  This wine was more of an earthy dark wine.  It has some good characteristics but not my style.  The mid palate and the finish were huge in the tobacco and black pepper area.  Overall just ok but better than a table wine. This wine would be very good with a spicy rib eye.

    An excellent pairing suggestion, and if I might be so bold, I’d add my own! As a Ghost Pines Representative, I often pair the Cabernet Sauvignon with my favorite Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon. Pairing the Cab with any forward flavor, such as an antipasto platter that boasts sharp, aged cheeses like Italian Parmesan or Pecorino, is also ideal as a starter.
