Editorial Reviews for Truchard Tempranillo Carneros
Earthy and tight on the nose with a bit of French oak adding sweetness to the mineral and dried cherry/strawberry tones that have a slight leathery edge. The sweet fruit on entry is met with a great acidic cut that leaves this opulent and almost voluptuous with rich tannins embedded in plush fruit. It’s a bit tight but with a top note of milk chocolate and lovely herbal nuances to the rather precise tobacco tinged, dark berry fruit. A touch of dry wood tannin reveals itself across the palate but there is plenty of fruit to balance it and the finish continues the theme though it is a touch hot. 90pts
Full of wood spice on the nose with smoking rocks, tilled earth, forest floor, mushroom, leather, all pumped up a bit and candied so I wouldn’t mistake this for Old world but still very attractive. Very smooth and polished on entry, bright herb, mushroom and soil tinged dark raspberry/black raspberry fruit. Lovely balance, a bit tight and unevolved but has admirable freshness and balance and holds its alcohol well, Has an appealing juiciness and just the right spice accents on the backend. Tannins are ever so intrusive on the finish but will integrate. Lovely 92pts
Harsh taste. No subtle flavors.
Nice and complex with well-balanced spice. A little sweet and the finish left me hanging a little.
Rotten fruity aroma, cork on the mouth...it's corked :(
