1997 Chileans

Chilean wine tasting at Manly Wine City.

1997 Le Dix de Los Vascos - surprisingly sweet. Tannins were heavy for the young cab.

1997 Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta - this was much lighter with a sweeter nose. The berries were more prominent, and shows the characters of merlot. Finish was a it spicy and turns tannic on the tongue. Very nice but too young.

1997 Almaviva - this was not anjoyable at first. It was so typically Bordeaux, very weedy and earthy. Could not taste much fruit. However it opened up more after another half hour and fruit was more evident.

1997 Carmen - not enjoyale

1997 Los Boldos - not enjoyable.
