El Picador Cabernet Sauvignon Valle Central Chile 2000
This type of wine is always dark and heavy but the problem with this wine is that it was almost a characature of the type. The taste was acceptable though without the finesse of the cheaper Los Chaclos offering but the real problem was that the wine was so heavy that one glass left me feeling full and bloated and not wanting any more.

You might want to try a small glass after a meal instead of a glass of port but there is no way that you could consider this wine as a good accompanyment to food.

Wine rating 5/10. Value rating -1
