Odfjell Carménère 2005
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.
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.
phenomenal wine for the price. stays with you in a very nice warm kinda way. After a long tiring day the perfect choice to relax and enjoy.
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.
