Tasting Notes:

The deep crimson-colored 2006 Vinedo Chadwick is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee aged for 18 months in new French oak. It offers up an ethereal bouquet of toasty oak, scorched earth, incense, spice box, blackcurrant and blackberry reminiscent of a great vintage of Chateau Palmer (think 1961, 1966, 1970). On the palate it is silky, elegant, concentrated and already complex. With superb depth and grip, this succulent, plush effort will evolve for at least 10-15 years and offer prime-time drinking from 2020 to 2046. The vineyard for Eduardo Chadwick's namesake Vinedo Chadwick is located next to the Almaviva estate. This 32 acre hillside property in the foothills of the Andes is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon with just a bit of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.Importer: Vintus Wines, Pleasantville, NY;

Tasting Notes:

Haven't seen this excellent wine in a couple of vintages, and while the $180 price tag is sky high there's no denying the wine's quality, which centers around cedar and tobacco aromas and fine core fruit. Flavors and aromas of cassis, berry and plum have tobacco and balsamic accents, while the feel is warm and lush but structured.
