Casa Silva Los Lingues -Microterroir Carmenere Colchagua Valley Chile Cl 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nice herbal, menthol, eucalyptus notes, a little char, some grilled meat notes. Almost chalky, dusty soil. This is firm in the mouth with plenty of black fruit, nice texture, sweet tannins, fine dark berry fruit. Spicy with a bit of black pepper. Fresh and crisp, lively with blueberry fruit and a savory layer of tannin. 90pts
