- 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
- Vina Maquis Viola 2009 Product #29468 (In Stock)
Here's a stunning blend of Chile's unique Carmenere blended with 15% Cabernet Franc. Carmenere gives the wine loads of dark red fruit - black plum, cherry, and raspberry - exotic spice, and a rich, voluptuous, texture. The Cabernet Franc provides lift to the aromas and flavors and adds grace notes of crushed herb, tobacco, and black pepper. Powerful and very deep, it finishes firm and rich with dark fruit, herb, and floral notes lingering. A "wow" wine to enjoy with rich foods or on its own.
