San Pedro 1865 Single Vineyard Carmenère 2008, Maule Valley, Chile

This wine has been made in a style which will have a wide appeal and should be enjoyed by many. It is a full bodied red with loads of flavour and smooth with a spicy finish. It is a very aromatic wine with black cherry, fresh dark plums, cassis, mint, rosemary, cedar and tobacco leaf. The mouthfeel has rich texture, lively acidity and ripe tannins. This Carmenère finish is long, fresh with black pepper and underbrush. Good balance between fruity and savoury elements, very good value here, strongly recommended.

This wine was purchased September 17, 2011 LCBO New Release at $19.95
