Lote 25 de Martino Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

virgin

The most notable feature of this Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is the depth of the punt in the base of the glass bottle. Not usually something to write home about as the cone-shaped punt on a wine bottle has almost become irrelevant now thanks to wine making techniques that remove wine deposits and so you no longer need a device to keep them in check as you pour out wine. But the punt on this beastie was the depth of my thumb – so about five times deeper than it really needs to be and so is only there for show and using up more glass than is really necessary. The wine though is tasty with creamy cherry and blackcurrant flavours that soften with opening. Compare this 2019 vintage to the 2016 version also reviewed which came out at a four-star rating.
