Emiliana Organic Novas Carmenere/Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impact. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers. Novas Carménère/Cabernet Sauvignon shows ruby-red in color, with intense aromas of cherries blended with spices, vanilla, and coffee. The result is an extremely complex and elegant wine with medium body, firm, silky, mouth-filling, well-balanced acidity, and a tremendous finish.This seductive red works beautifully well with tomato sauces, game, beef, lamb or duck.

This wine seemed to me to have an unpleasant flavor and too much acid. It was fairly concentrated, but seemed kind of simple and strong. Mainly, I didn't like the taste of it.
