in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day twenty-one

Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2006Day twenty-one of the Juiciest Wine tour and day two one the mini Chilean Wine tour is brought to you by Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2006. I’ve had the other Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvingon when Mahan’s was selling it for $4. At that price it was excellent. Then it went up to $5, and it was still good. Then it went up to $6, and then it was ok. Same wine, but the taste didn’t match its price. Still, it’s a pretty good wine. This one is different. It’s the Reserve, so it should be better.

Santa Ema is in Maipo Valley, which is in Valle Central. See day twenty‘s map of Chile.

The Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2006 has long-lasting legs like the Armador Cabernet Sauvignon 2007. It also has a peppery and dark berry nose with a hint of honey-dew mellon. It’s chewy and leathery especially on the finish. There’s some currant, dark currant, especially up front and around the gums. It finishes with pepper and dark berries. This is a solid cab with a big body. It’s cohesive. The tastes are intertwined with each other and are hard to separate – like my girlfriend and me.//
