- Errazuriz Carmenere Max Reserva 2011 Product #27712 (In Stock)
Down in Chile, they at first thought Carmenere was Merlot, and there's certainly a nice dose of Merlot's plump currant fruit and round, rich, texture here. But Carmenere excels at adding a complex, Cab Franc-like, set of herbal/tobacco aromas to the mix. Here, there's also a dark, meaty, element to the aromas and flavors and a plush, velvety, finish. Excellent to sip or with beef tenderloin!
