Extremely vegetal aromas, very well balanced, with bunches of cherry and raspberry fruit. Very smooth and vegetal, more herbal on the palate than I might have imagined, but very pleasant. Like the balance.

Lots of black pepper in this wine, with a bit of dark fruit and oak. Sharp bitter texture on the mouth. The pepper is too much for me to enjoy regularly, but there is some interesting complexity behind it, w/ stone fruit and grass.

Dark purple color. Medium bodied with a fruit forward palate that caught me by surprise. Slight floral aroma on the nose. Herbal palate with hints of plum and a strong cherry aspect. Slightly acidic through the finish.

On the nose, I found blackberry, chalk dust, green bell pepper and manure. On the palate, it was big yet balanced, showing wild berries, more green pepper leading to a cough syrup like finish. Looking back on my notes, I feel as if these descriptors fail to do this wine justice. The fact is, it was highly enjoyable in a gripping and earthy way.

Densely colored, it's dark and inky. Sour cherry on the nose with violets and a slight metallic tone. also, some baking spice. It has very bright acid. It ends up being lighter bodied than expected. I didn't feel it showed enough complexity to balance the acid. Odd since apparently I tasted this before and thought much more of it.

Nose of lush, dark blackberry and boysenberry fruit with hints of licorice and some herbal tones. On the palate, fresh, pure blue and black fruit flavors. Concentrated fruit. Some spice on the mid palate. Tarry, tobacco finish. Dry and lingering finish.

Colchagua Valley, ChileCasa Silva Carmenere Reserva is a beautiful expression of the Carmenere grape that is now flourishing in South America. Vina Casa Silva was founded in 1892 by French wine pioneer Emilio Bouchon and is owned today by Mario Silva, the fifth generation of winemakers. Many of the vines are more than 90 years old, carried over from Bordeaux pre-phylloxera. After decades of selling its juice to bulk wineries, Casa Silva began a bold estate bottling initiative in 1997, establishing the winery as a leader of the new generation of premium wine producers. It was named Best South American Producer at the 2000 International Wine & Spirits Competition in London. In the words of Jay Miller of the Wine Advocate, "Casa Silva is producing some of the best Carmenere in Chile." This new 2009 vintage just received a 90-point rating! It is without a doubt a Chilean wine gem.Casa Silva Carmenere Reserva is deep red/purple in color with complex aromas of blackberries, plums, chocolate, toffee, white pepper and spice. Made from 88% Los Lingues and 12% Lolol fruit, this big red is full in body, powerful yet elegant. On the palate, it is round and mouth-filling with sweet tannins and a gorgeous balance between fruit and French oak. Aged 50% in French oak for 7 months. Hand-harvested and sorted. On the finish, it is long and rich.Enjoy Casa Silva Carmenere Reserva over the next 5-7 years with roast beef, steak, meat empanadas and aged cheeses.

Casa Silva is now owned by Mario Silva and family - the fifth generation of winemakers. Many of the vines planted are over 90 years old, carried over from Bordeaux, pre-phylloxera, by the first generation.
