Wine of the Week: A 'Round' Chilean Cabernet by Locomotora

AltTulsa likes sip a little wine every now and again—just for dinner, you understand. It helps the digestion.

In recent weeks, we sipped our way through several bottles of a good 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, a country that has a history of producing quality wines at a good price.

This Locomotora red is a relatively light Cab with a rounded, balanced flavor. It's a bit hot or peppery at first swig, but calms down a bit in another sip or two. It shows a lot of fruit flavors, perhaps a combination of dark cherry and other fruits. The finish is fairly long as well, a good sign in our book.

We drank it with food and with appetizers and cheese, and it worked well every time. At about $8 a bottle at Ranch Acres in Tulsa, it's worth a try.

I love the wine just for its name. I'll have to try a good $8 bottle of wine.

We noticed the great name too, but have no idea what it signifies. For the price, we weren't asking any questions. Enjoy.
