Viña Casas Patronales Carménère Valle del Maule Reserva 2011

Member Review by barri0s1872:

very good wine under ten bucks. it's like smashing the intensity and robustness of a malbec with the silkiness of a good bordeaux; it takes a little while to open up but when it does it gets chocolaty with black cherries, plums, and currant that carry over to the palate leaving you satisfied and surprised. and you can leave it open for four days and it'll hold itself together and get a little better, a little tobacco-y.

Very aromatic, with asparagus, gooseberry, and gravel dominating the nose. The wine is nicely acidic, with grapefruit definitely making an appearance, especially from mid-palate to the finish. I find that this wine shows a bit better warmer, rather than too chilled.

Typical of a Chilean Sauv Blanc. Has a slight apple front with a hint of peaches and finishes heavy on citrus. Good wine for the price.

My notes are old on this wine, but they read "Medium body, smooth, dry, good spices. Liked the cherry, a bit acidy". But I do remember really liking it!

This straw-coloured wine has fruity aromas with notes of pineapple, freshly cut grass and hints of lemon. It is friendly and very lively on the palate, juicy and has a smooth finish. - Winery
