Gato Negro 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

this is the third wine i have tried from this chilean winery. at $3.99 a bottle, you have to at least give it a shot to see whether it is worth buying as a nice everyday red to have around. much like the now famous two-buck chuck, this wine is not bad for a drinkable red, but if you are looking for bold, complex, hearty cabs, steer clear of gato negro. the nose was blackberry and spice. the taste was raspberry, cherry and spice with medium tannins. the wine was a bit young and green, not nearly as bold as it could have been. not impressed with this one.
