2010 Calcu Carmenere Colchagua Valley 13.5% $12

A bit tight on the nose with slow to emerge floral, oak and red fruit aromas that turn rather woodsy and savory. Rather well-balanced in the mouth, this shows integrated acids and soft tannins supporting simple herb, ash, cafe au lait and allspice-inflected wild berry fruit that has a slightly creamy texture. The finish shows a fair amount of wood tannin, but the underlying fruit is rich enough to run with it. Fruity and a bit simple with a rustic finish. 84pts
