Chono Carmenere Reserva 2011

Member Review by Chris Carpita:

Aroma is big with wood accents, chili pepper, and cocoa powder. Palate slides in smoothly, red fruit and cinnamon come out with increasing body force of tannins and heat. Satisfying finish.

Raspberry nose, bright red berries and spice, soft body but enough umph from the Syrah to make it nice

A big nose, with complex smokey flavors. Finish with bell peppers.

a little thin for me for a carmenere. I like mine oily and hedonistic. this one was almost like a carmenere attempting to be a bordeaux blend. Nice mouth feel and body though. Definitely better value than a cali cab at this price, but I could find better carmenere's for $13.

I was first introduced to the lovely Carmenere grape by wine guru Scott at Appellation Wines in Chelsea. Knowing my love for big, spicy reds from South America (seriously, give me a good Malbec and I'm yours for the taking), he thought I might enjoy this complex Bordeaux refugee. This particular vintage is subtle and dusty on your lips but smacks your palate hard (but not too hard...) after that first sip - which is exactly what you want from a Chilean red. I like it, though, because it's not quite as full bodied as, say, a Malbec or a Cab, so it's a lighter glass on the whole. Goes great with Manchego cheese or anything involving beef. It's one of my standards - give it a shot.

This is a hearty, dark red wine made from the Carmenère grape variety. It's aged in oak for a short period of time to give it just a little spice on the palate. An excellent choice for anything barbecued or meat-based.
