Rating: ** Dona Javiera Amapola Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile, 2008 - Wine Review

Find prices and retail availability for Amapola Cabernet Sauvignon.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Dona Javiera Amapola Cabernet Sauvignon, Maipo Valley, Chile, 2008.

In the glass: Deep burgundy, opaque in the middle of the glass.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Chilean cabernet shows sweet fruits with a freshness reminiscent of clean laundry and fresh rains.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are gritty and fruity hints of dark fruit. 

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
