Casa Silva Carmenere Gran Reserva Los Lingues Chile Valle Central Rapel Colchagua Valley Red 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Crystallized black raspberry, bramble, little smoke, dried thyme, nice gentle white pepper spice. A bit soft on entry, nice density, nice fruit, very ripe yet fresh, nice mineral bed here. This has good clarity and transparency on the palate, lovely white pepper spice, no green here for better or worse, very faint green herb on nose, decisive texture, good cut on the back end. 89pts
