Panilonco Reserve Carmenere 2010

Member Review by EMark:

Deep dark purple in the glass, but it's all downhill from there. Disturbing viney, vegetative aromas. Tip of the tongue starts out pleasant--fruity--but, then, here comes the viney, olivey flavors as the wine travels over the tongue and through the palate. This wine reminds me of the terrible California Merlots that were foisted on us 15 or so years ago. On Christmas I had a Chilean Carmenere that my brother brought, and I really liked it, but I could not remember the name. He said it came from Trader Joe's. Since we were at Trader Joe's a few days ago. I looked for it, but could not find the label we'd had on Christmas. So, I figured I would try this one. For US$3.99 I was not gouged, but I will not look for this again.

I liked the mellow flavor and bright acidity and fruit flavor.
