The label claims this wine to be the finest expression of Chile. Let's hope not because I didn't care for the wine and couldn't finish the first glass.
Robin Garr has a point.......
I tend to be a bit more wary of wines from Chile, not because of any intrinsic flaw in the region's wines but because, frankly, too many of its producers in recent years have chosen to export modest, one-dimensional wines that compete against American big-brand varietal wines at the lower end of the marketplace, offering low prices but not great value.
That's less true today than it was fifteen years ago, but still something to keep in mind with respect to Chilean wine.
TWC reviewed the 2004 Veo Cab a couple of years ago and pronounced it drinkable.
.....an inexpensive Chilean wine, though far from memorable offers a decent glass at a decent price ($6.00-$10.00 US).
Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the 2006.
UPDATE: The VEO has improved after leaving the bottle open for 24 hours. I'm tasting a little raspberry and a hint of vanilla. Turns out that the wine is drinkable after all. On the NoStar scale it rates Swillable. TWC recomends vigorous decanting prior to pouring a round of the Veo.
