This is a very nice Carmenere from Chile. It has a long finish, with tastes of plum, fruity and has a touch of tobacco taste. Goes well with steak, stew and brie cheese.
A nice choice for wine of the month. Good value.

It is a full bodied red with loads of flavour and smooth with a spicy finish. It is a very aromatic wine with black cherry, fresh dark plums, cassis, mint, rosemary, cedar and tobacco leaf. The mouthfeel has rich texture, lively acidity and ripe tannins. This Carmenère finish is long, fresh with black pepper and underbrush. Good balance between fruity and savoury elements, very good value here, strongly recommended.
