Terra Andina Carménère 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Made from the Carmenere grape, this decadent Chilean wine brandishes a violet-ruby robe along with the typical green olive, green pepper, and cigar ash aromatics associated with this varietal, but also showcases delicious notes of chocolate syrup, herbs, cherries, and blood oranges. Soft, round, and juicy on the palate, this punchy, fruit-forward wine is medium-bodied and ready to drink now. A virtual clarion call to all other Carmenere producers in South America, this rousing iteration from Terra Andina has set the bar for this varietal...90" Sonoma Wine Journal 1/10

Terra Andina:
Terra Andina combines the promise and innovation of new world winemaking with the tradition and passion of old world ideals. The resulting wines are as seductive in their fruit forward style as they are armonious in their balance.

After 5 days vacu-corked in the fridge this wine was still very full and delicious even if it had lost a few nuances. Nose of floral, juniper, hint of smoke and ripe fruit. Smooth, tame, easy acid and a bit more grippy tannin with richer chewy ripe dry plum and currant fruit and mild pepper, just delicious at refridgerator temps. Finishes of sweet wax, fruit, leather and oil. Excellent QPR given how it lasted in the fridge.

Pop and pour ... Solid and tasty carmenere I would buy again. Inviting, even beautiful nose of blue floral, juniper berry, and a hint of smoke with darker ripe fruit. On the attack smooth, steady, and not strong acid and tannins with almost a floral taste followed by earthy sour ripe dry fruit and mild black pepper. Finish of same plus a bit of greenness with a hint of mineral or metal. Not so much green pepper taste as often evident with Chilean-grown fruit. Pretty good QPR.

smokey, plumb, just a hint of bitter at the end. I Love it!

This fruit-forward Chilean wine gives off aromas of plum, currant, and hints of black pepper. Its light yet deep fruity complexion then bounces off your tongue to leave a clean, jammy blackberry flavor lingering on the palate. Would pair well with grilled beef and comes at a great value.

Perfect backyard summer red mdash; a bright purply-pink color in the glass with fresh aromas of violets and blackberries. Delightfully tasty on the palate with ripe berry, a hint of white chocolate and blueberries lasting on the finish. Great value mdash; Terra Andina Carmenere and Cabernet are my go-to bargain reds.

Ruby-red. Jammy red and dark berries on the nose, with gentle spiciness building in the glass. Creamy and sweet, with vivid raspberry and blueberry flavors, zero tannins and good snap to the finish. This is a pretty amazing bargain and extremely easy to drink.

Opaque ruby. Pungent aromas of black cherry, smoke and black pepper. Then sappy, sweet and light-bodied, with good verve to the black and blue fruit and licorice flavors. Somewhat clenched, but backed a firm spine of acidity and good closing cut.

A wonderful introduction to the Carmeacute;negrave;re grape, this wine is flavorful and complex, with the essence of smoked cherries, blackberry, tobacco leaf, cocoa and spices.
