Concha Y Toro Carménère Colchagua Valley Frontera 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Some toast and sweet wood spice on the nose balances some black currant fruit with a nice herbaceous underlay. This is a nicely balanced, slightly small-scaled wine in the mouth with good acidity, nice freshness to the smoky, slightly earthy black currant fruit and a nice bed of fine-grained yet austere tannins. The finish is a touch coarse and woody, but the fruit does pop on the finale. Reminds me of modest Bordeaux. 85pts

My Rating 87: Amazing good for the low price of 5-6 Dollars. Full fruity wine with strong flavors and nose of Carmenere. For everyday wine this exceeds his requirement.

It may have been abandoned in its Bordeaux home, but Carmenegrave;re has found a home and a new life in Chile. It makes red wines with good juicy fruit, freshness, flavors of ripe plums. This example, blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah, is a great wine just to drink, full of fruit, with a touch of toast, vanilla and smooth tannins.

A simple wine, this offers sweet cherry flavor packed in a light, velvety texture, green herbal notes adding freshness. For barbecue.
