1992 Portal del Alto Cabernet Sauvignon

Gran Reserva, Maipo Valley, Chile ($6)

Chilean cabernets often disappoint, but not this new arrival. It offers pure flavors of black cherry and black currant, with little of the bell pepper that often mars Chilean reds. This robust wine has plenty of length and grip and will likely age well for such an inexpensive wine. Looking for a good "house red"? Here's a good candidate.
