- Cono Sur Cabernet Carmenere Syrah Organic 2015 Product #31153 (In Stock)
We love the motto here: "No family trees. No dusty bottles. Just quality wine." Plenty of quality here in this rich, round, complex blend of Cabernet, Syrah and Chile's own Carmenere. Big aromas of black fruit - blackberry, plum, black cherry - with crushed herb and spice. Round and fleshy on the palate, the fruit takes center stage with herbal notes coming out and lingering nicely. Fun stuff!
- Errazuriz Carmenere Max Reserva 2013 Product #30428 (In Stock)
Carmenere has a bit of Merlot's plumpness crossed with Cab Franc herb. Here's a great example with plenty of fruit and spice.
"Smoky cherry, cassis and dried rose on the pungent nose. A suggestion of mint comes up with air and adds an edge to the wine's fleshy dark fruit flavors. Dusty tannins give shape to the finish, which lingers with very good spicy persistence." Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points
