Odfjell Carménère 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Strikingly deep red and dark violet color. Aromas are highlighted by abundant black fruit, with notes of spice such as black pepper, as well as vanilla, plums, cherries, dried fruit, tobacco, tea, licorice and chocolate. Round, juicy and refreshing on the palate, leaving a long finish, which increases and fills the mouth. Well-balanced, with excellent acidity and mature tannins, there is also a nice complexity between the fruit and the aromas that originate from the oak.

Over 25 years ago, the pioneering Norwegian Armador, (ship owner) Dan Odfjell discovered and fell in love with a small corner of the famous Maipo Valley, Chile. Born of rain in Bergen, Norway, he could not resist the attraction of the austral sun in this Virgilian setting. Serendipity would later show that he had found land in Chile's premium red wine producing valley, where vitis vinifera has been cultivated since the 17th century. And where a soothing coastal breeze produces a microclimate conducive to distinct and beautiful wines. This was the start of our journey, the start of what we today know as Odfjell Vineyards.

Absolutely fantastic for the price...as low as US$ 8.99 (Rochester, NY). Subtle bite with smooth tannins, finishing the palette with a velvety chocolate texture. Deep, ruby purple in visual spectral quality. Notes of berries with slight floral notes.

very standard and nice. not much to say. i like the fact that it is made from grapes from two different chilean regions. it exhibits all of the qualities of a chilean wine.

Drank earlier and was quite spicy and peppery, aggressive. Drank 1/09 and was quite nice, pepper had folded in, smoother and deeper.
