Los Vascos, Colchagua Valley (Chile) Cabernet Sauvignon “Cromas” Gran Reserva 2018

($22, Taub Family Selections):  This Cromas Gran Reserva is the new name for Los Vascos’ mid-level Cabernet Sauvignon, below Le Dix in stature, but above their straight Cabernet.  A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) with Syrah and Carménère, it’s ripe and plush.  Dark fruit flavors predominate, offset by a hint of savory ones.  Good acidity keeps the wine fresh and soft tannins allow for immediate consumption.
