Terra Andina Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, D.O. Valle Central, Chile - $9

We brought this wine to RS/MS's place for dinner tonight. I purchased this wine for $9 at Whole Foods.

Aroma - red fruit, very fruity
Taste - strong tobacco, dry finish, bitter at the end

We had this wine with fried tilapia (a little metallic tasting with the fish), couscous with spinach and walnuts, and a salad of cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, celery, and Cuban lime dressing.

I really like this winery's Carmenère. This CS is fine, but there are better choices out there close to this price point. I'd rather spend a few more dollars to get a Sebastiani ($13), Liberty School ($11), or Rodney Strong($11) Cab Sauv.
