Who’s geared up and ready for the weekend? Us too! But before you galavant off to your adventures, we must draw your attention to today’s epic bang for your buck, out of the roof QPR Cabernet from Chile. This wine ROCKS. Like seriously. It will knock you out of your seat and you’ll gaze puzzled into the abyss as to how and why you never let this wine delicately caress your palate before. $17 Cabernet?! Nearly 40% off retail?! Did we mentioned the scores? 94pts Descorchados (the who’s who wine guide of Chile), 93pts Wine & Spirits, 91pts James Suckling, 90pts Wine Advocate. This cannot be ignored, folks! 

Santa Ema’s founding Pavone family came to Chile in 1917 and for over 100 years, their family has farmed the Maipo Valley’s unique terroir. Their wines have been features on Wine Spectator’s Top 100, and recently, the winery was named by Wine Spectator as one of their Top 20 World's Finest Value Brands. Wine & Spirits Magazine also named them Value Winery of the Year. It probably goes without saying, but these guys know what their doing and know how to craft a killer bottle of wine that doesn’t make your wallet whimper in pain.

"It’s young and already delicious, ready to serve with grilled flank steak. It’s also age worthy, a subtle red that will gain in complexity and depth.” 93pts, Wine & Spirits

"Cool and fresh. A sleek cabernet with some real elegance. The dry tannins carry the long finish beautifully.” 91pts, James Suckling

Their Amplus line comes from the Latin word for “important, sophisticated, distinguished and honorable.” The goal with these wines is to blend tradition and modernity and craft wines with immense complexity and elegance. This particular Amplus Cabernet is sourced from a single vineyard from one of the Maipo Valley’s highest spots.

Fresh notes of red and black plums, blackberries and blueberries with hints of toast, warm spice, dark chocolate and menthol. Nicely integrated tannins with a lift of acidity. A firm structure with nice concentration of flavor and texture.

In a word, impressive. Our minds were blown at the quality for this price. $17?! This can run circles around $30+ domestic Cabernets any day. $102 a 6-pack with shipping included. If you don’t think you need it, you do, trust us on this one.
