Las Cruces a Big Hit with Bloggers
Last week, Wines of Chile held a “virtual” tasting for bloggers around the world, featuring some of the most interesting red wine blends coming out of Chile.The event included 8 Chilean winemakers presenting their wines via internet video technology to connect with more than 60 bloggers who posed questions to the winemakers and shared their comments both in real-time and afterward on their blogs.
Among those tasted and tweeted about was De Martino Old Bush Vines “Las Cruces” — which received high praise from many bloggers. For example …
The Bottle Report found it to be “silky, smooth like satin.”
Wine Peeps gave the wine 3.5 stars
Cheap Wine Ratings found it to be a “rich and delicious wine”.
A Fit and Spicy Life found Las Cruces to be the favorite of the group.
BrainWines called the Las Cruces “brilliant” and rated it with a 90-point score.
Chilean Wine said “This wine has a 10-year cellaring potential…”
Many other bloggers will be posting their notes soon … if you see any that we missed, be sure to let us know!
