Arboleda Carménère Colchagua Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :Beautifully deep and intensely violet colour, this wine begins with characteristic aromas and flavors of sweet spices like clover and cinnamon mixed with black tea and tobacco notes before opening to show big fruit intensity, blackberries and cherry notes and sweet vanilla and cacao from the oak. Surprisingly fresh, with great structure and very fine, sweet tannins, ending with a soft texture and nice body that linger on the palate. The moderate temperatures that accompanied this vintage encouraged the phenological stages – flowering, fruit set, and ripening – to proceed slowly and easily, delaying the harvest, producing fully ripe tannins and rich fruit aromas and flavors. These qualities, which are clearly reflected in the impressively concentrated, intensely fruity and fresh characteristics of the wine, combined with a remarkable oscillation between daily high and low temperatures to produce very intense colors in a season that will likely be considered one of the best vintages on record

Wine Advocate ReviewNo tasting note was given.Wine Tasting NotesWith an intense violet color, the wine shows characteristic aromas and palate flavors of spice, black tea and tobacco which broaden out to become rich blackberries and sweet spices, helped by oak aging. The wine has a fresh fruit character, along with considerable structure, fine, sweet tannins that impart a soft texture and a long finish.

Dunkles Purpur. Intensives reifbeeriges Bouquet nach schwarzen Johannisbeeren und Heidelbeeren. Köstliche Aromatik, Cassis prägt den wundervoll fülligen Gaumen, gestützt von einer erfrischenden Säure, sehr gute, weiche Gerbstoffstruktur, etwas Vanille, Lavendel, intensiv und anhaltend bis in den seidenen Abgang.
