Veramonte Red Blend Primus 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Inky ruby. Fresh red and dark berries on the nose. Lively raspberry and blackcurrant flavors are firmed by tangy minerals and given depth by dark chocolate, picking up fine-grained tannins with air. A refreshingly pure blend, with very good finishing cut and persistence..." IWC 04/09

I've had corked wines, wines with zero nose, wines with zero taste, but never a wine that smelled like dirty socks in a high school gym locker. I'd be careful on this one.

This red is based on Carmenère, a rare old Bordeaux grape that was widely planted there 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.
