Wine tasting note: Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon

Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon

25th Aug 1998 GBP7 Chile Table Red

[Tasted Blind]
Pale, even, garnet/red.
Intense currant fruit on the nose with perfumed, floral notes.
Medium bodied with intense, clean berry fruit and earthy/iron flavours coming through in the middle.
Mature and enjoyable with a long peppery finish.
[Fullness 3/5, Drinkability A - Drink now, 95/100]
With Game:
The spicy, peppery flavours worked quite well with the Grouse but the wine was a touch too weighty.
Too weighty again for the Venison, and quite dry and austere with the jelly.
Stalky and metallic with the strongly flavoured Wood Pigeon, undrinkable with the Rabbit - pungent, astringent and metallic.
[Grouse 2, Venison 3, Wood Pigeon 4, Rabbit X]
