Even though I am a fan of homegrown Californian wine I do like to occasionally venture into import wines to see how different different regions create new tastes. Gato Negro Cabernet Sauvignon was one of those wines I came across in my shopping activities and decided to throw a bottle in my cart. It wasn't a bad choice.
Gato Negro is a well known brand of Chile that is exported to many other nations. It is from one of the older wineries of Viña San Pedro. A popular wine that has won significant award. Consumers generally rate the experience positively but a minority of online reviews expressed dislike.
Personally I found the wine to be very drinkable. It was smooth and fruity and seemed to lay more in the wet arena. I have never been fond of excessively dry and high tannin tastes. As an important wine that can be used to add some variety to your selection life it is worth picking up a bottle.
Out of all the red wine available Cabernet Sauvignon has the highest concentration of antioxidants. Wine made from red and purple grapes are better for you than green and white. The dark purple and red hues being the best.Gato Negro's Cabernet Sauvignon offers a higher level of antioxidants.

Certainly you can find more expensive wines as well as those that may tantalize your taste buds to a higher sizzle but you are unlikely to find a quality wine for under $5. Try a taste of Chile without having to skimp on your bills.
