Bisquertt Ecos De Rulo Single Vineyard Carmenère 2009, Colchagua Valley, Chile
A pretty nose on this Carmenère with aromas of wild berries, plum, violet, tobacco leaf and peppery notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied (with alcohol coming in at 14%) with a smooth texture, vibrant acidity and soft tannins. Medium length on the finish with flavours of red and dark fruit, herbal notes with a slightly tart ending. Not overly complex but still enjoyable, definitely not a sipping wine, it is much better paired with food. Score 88 points.
