This wine definitely needs to get some air. Initial aroma I would describe as stinky. With air the stinkyness disappears replaced by ripe red fruit, especially cherries. Definitely taste of leather and tobacco. Great tannins, long finish. A bit of spice in there too. YUMMY ... but needs air, remember that. :-)

Fresh, hot, black fruit aromas with nice pepper and spice. Nice, round tannins and a eucalyptus finish. The palate is dark to start, but brightens up a bit in the mouth. A very interesting wine -- would go well with food, grilled meats or vegetables and maybe some black olives.

Had to rush through my tasting, but noticed a lot of spice and great fruit. The wine was really balanced and interesting. Would definitely buy a bottle (good value) to enjoy at a more leisurely pace.

Very fruity, rich and juicy. Finish is all christmas cake and spice, with a bit of licorice and menthol right at the end. A pretty yummy (as hondajohn says) tasty, rich opulent wine. You can smell and taste the sun baked fruit. Really nice.

To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln's mock blurb for a book he disliked: this is clearly the kind of wine that appeals to the kind of people who like this kind of wine. It does improve a bit on airing, but to me it is redolent of muskrat underarm odor. Still, at an informal blind wine tasting, two friends insisted they liked it; two had mixed responses, a fifth (whose judgment I generally trust) called it "vile." You may like it, but don't buy a case until you've tried it.

This red is based on Carmenère, a rare old Bordeaux grape that was widely planted in the 1700s and is currently undergoing a revival in Chile. Rich yet elegant, this full-bodied wine from Franciscan Estates' excellent new Chilean property is a top-notch find, and enough to convert anyone who hasn't yet discovered the glories of Chilean wine.
