Oveja Negra Reserva Cabernet Franc-Carmenere 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Perfumy oak, some nice eucalyptus edge, blueberry. A little Brett, though supposedly not brett and actually character of the cooler climate Carmenere. Leather, animal, red currant. Spicy on the nose, a touch black. Crisp, well focused and almost a bit lean but with plenty of richness emerging on the mid-palate. Spicy, minty and a bit oaky on the short finish. Bit of sweetness, bit of sweet black licorice, vanilla finale. Crisp and a little candied on the finale, easy, spicy, blueberryish fruit. 88pts

Cabernet Franc 70%, Carmenere 30%; excellent spice aromas, sweetly-fruited, well-balanced; drink nowandndash;5 years.

Vivid ruby. Raspberry, cherry and smoked meat on the nose, with a subtle floral quality and a hint of white pepper. Juicy red fruit flavors are a bit wound up but show good energy and clarity. I like this winersquo;s vivacity and finishing precision but some will find it on the skinny side.
