Carmenere Tasted April 2013

6. Santa Ema Camernere Reserve Barrel Select (2009)

« Prev Next » 6 of 10
Intensely aromatic with oak and vanilla notes competing with assertive vegetal, herbal dried tomato aromas. There's some low wild berry and currant fruit here as well but this is not fruit driven, though it is very complex. Soft and broad in the mouth, this has lovely red cherry and plum fruit framed by gentle herbal and spice notes in a decidedly silky texture. The oak adds a core of chocolate and spice, but its in balance with the fruit. Elegant and refined, the finish shows a bit more oak than I would like, ending on a rather spicy note, but this is drinking very well today. 88pts
