ViBo Punta del Viento
The 2011 ViBo Punta del Viento is a blend of 68% Garnacha, 21% Monastrell and the rest Syrah from the Punta del Viento plot from El Olivar, a slope vineyard in Peralillo, where the soil is rich in clay. It was aged in used barriques. It has bright red fruit, is powerful but still medium-bodied, with 15% alcohol, which is very well integrated. Supple and balanced, and a great combination of the freshness of the Garnacha and the backbone of Monastrell and Syrah, this kind of Mediterranean blend makes much more sense to me in a warm-climate region like Colchagua. Bravo! It’s a little too oaky, so leave it in the bottle for a little longer. Great value! Drink 2015-2020.
ViBo Viñedo Centenario
The 2011 ViBo Vinedo Centenario is a Cabernet-Malbec blend from centenary vines completed with a dash of Petit Verdot. It is a serious red blend, with structure and meat, well-oaked, but with freshness and stuffing to reach better balance in bottle. Drink 2015-2020.
