Terra Noble Carmenère Gran Reserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkelrote Farbe. Bereits in der Nase findet man Schokolade, reife Feigen und schwarze Beeren. Im Mund bestätigt sich dieser Eindruck; hinzukommen Mokka- und Kaffeenoten sowie holzgeprägte Aromen wie Rauch, Vanille, Brotkruste. Sehr gute Struktur mit reifen, präsenten Tanninen. Schöne Ausgewogenheit und viel Reserve im Abgang.

Viñedos Terrenoble was founded in 1993 by Jorge Elgueta in Valle de Maule, Chile. The wines steadily gained recognition through the years since then. In 2006, Wolf von Appen and Patricio de Solminhiac joined the Elgueta family to expand winery operations throughout Chile, exploring new vineyard locations. Terrenoble is dedicated to producing wines from grapes best suited to their individual terroir and climate (as opposed to planting popular varietals anywhere and hoping for the best). Their philosophy is to, “produce modern, high quality, elegant and pleasant to drink wines, with presence of aromatic and fruit flavors extracting, maintaining and highlighting features of each variety.”  Read less

Super fine sage, menthol and spinach notes. Jammy, almost fudgy fruit. Really pronounced carob notes, jammy black fruit with wild strawberry hints, black cherry. Opulent and rich, soft tannins, mouthful lung, gentle rosemary herbal spice top notes, fine crushed currant and black cherry fruit, hint of green orange peel, rich with soft tannins, fine bright acid, juicy finish, spicy finish, little bit of heat. Finish shows a touch balsamic, very fresh and zesty. 90pts

Shows a nose of dark berries, mineral earthiness, pepper and spices with some notes of coffee as it breathes. The palate shows big dark berries, with some dusty sweet spices and pepper with a finish of cherries mixed with some spices, coffee bean and menthol.

amazing nose filled with red spices and red fruit, a creaminess on the palate, beautiful berry fruit combined with a little spice and currant, nice mouth feel and finish

That earthy, dirty, nose/taste with barnyard and tobacco essence, is something I like in many wines. This may not be for everyone... however the fruit is lusher, fruitier than I normally prefer, but the earthiness and toasted vanilla seem to balance it out. BTW, I agree with the snooth pairing recommendation of arugula, steak, and pear pizza....

Wonderful example of the Chilean Carmenere. New world and fruit forward but complex and incredibly balanced. Easy to drink and keeps you wanting more. Hints if red berries amongst a mix of playful tannins.

Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. Its objective is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroirs of Chile.

There's noticeable oak on the nose, giving it a nice, noble quality. Toasty richness. Some cinnamon and spice box. Slight hints of tobacco leaf. Downplayed fruit. On the palate it has rich texture. Great structure and balance. Rich red berry fruit. Some white pepper and spice. The oak element adds a nice layer. It's a sexy wine with almost a hint of flowers. Very nice. Lingering spicy red berry.

The Carmenère grape came to Chile via Bordeaux in the late nineteenth century, and lately it's been more at home in South America than France. The red wines made from this grape can range from refreshing and easy-drinking to full-bodied and dense. This is one of the brawnier ones, with rich, dark fruit and a touch of spiciness from oak aging.

Dunkelrote Farbe. Die Nase betört mit dem Duft nach Schokolade, reifen Feigen und schwarzen Beeren. Im Mund bestätigt sich dieser Eindruck; darüber hinaus findet man Mokka- und Kaffeenoten. Sehr gute Struktur mit reifen, präsenten Tanninen. Schöne Ausgewogenheit und viel Reserve im Abgang.

Intensives, dunkles Purpurrot. In der Nase herrliche Aromatik von schwarzen Johannisbeeren und reifen Zwetschgen ergänzt mit Noten von Kaffee und dunkler Schokolade. Konzentriert, rund und vollmundig am Gaumen mit angenehmer Tanninstruktur.
