Calina Carménère Reserva

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008 Posted in Carmenère, Cheap and Red, Chile | No Comments »

  Mrs. Barbarian and I enjoyed this wonderful Calina Reserva 2006 Carmenere with dinner the other night. The Mrs had purchased some pork chops, which I honestly loathe. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hater of swine flesh... quite the ...

The Devil Made Me Drink It!

Monday, October 6th, 2008 Posted in Carmenère, Cheap and Red, Chile | No Comments »

This wine actually saved us from a disaster. I had opened another bottle which Mrs. Barbarian tasted as I was cooking and pronounced it awful. I took a sip and confirmed (review coming soon!) so I reached into the wine ...

Mrs. Barbarian had a friend over last night, and we drank two and a half bottles of wine. A little of this, a little of that. The last bottle I pulled from my "cellar"... which is really an unfinished room ...

Saturday, July 19th, 2008 Posted in Cheap and Red, Chile, Syrah | No Comments »

I spotted this Chilean Syrah in the wine section of my grocer today and had to pick it up. I've seen all sorts of varietals from Chile, but never Syrah... until today. Now, being a brutish barbarian, I rarely stay ...

This is one of the wines I grabbed on that rampage through the wine section a while back. As promised here is the review. Not a bad Cab, but it isn't a mind-blower. But hey, what do you expect for under ...

Cono Sur Carmenere

Another great value from Chile. I keep seeing the Cono Sur brand at my local grocery store. They sell Pinot, some white varietals I don't care about, and this wonderful Carmenere. Being very interested in this particular grape led me to ...

Santa Ema 2005 Carmenère

Thursday, May 15th, 2008 Posted in Carmenère, Cheap and Red, Chile | 1 Comment »

This is a Santa Ema 2005 Carmenere barrel select that I picked up for $10.99. As you know, the Vinagoth has a thing for Chilean wines. They are good, cheap, and tasty. I actually first discovered them while living overseas (in ...

Pillage & Plunder!

The Vinagoth had some business to do in the big city today and stopped by a big wine merchant afterwards. I packed the passenger seat of my car with numerous bottles of Cheap Red Wine! Said treasures are being dragged ...

Nuevomundo es bueno!

The Vinagoth has been in a minor love affair with Chilean wines for a while now. I stumbled upon this one during my weekly skulk around the wine section of my local grocery. They had signs up about how it ...
