rich nose of plums....very rich mouthfeel with great balance and a hint of bell pepper on the finish...
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.
I am pleasantly surprised with this wine it's fruity and smooth at the same time.
Really smooth, nice raw flavor.
Incredibly good for $3.99. Updated: Newer release (August 2008, though same year) is poor.
