Calcu Carmenère 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

This wine is the color of morello cherries, almost to the rim. It’s lightly volatile on the nose but not unpleasantly so. This is a more structured Carmenère than the first two: the tannins are pleasantly tugging and the acidity is focused. In fact, the structure defines this wine more clearly than its aromas. The fruit smells rest reluctantly in the background, but they edged out on the palate to show pomegranate, loganberry and black currant. Quick finish.
