Here's a carmenère pushed to the limits in terms of ripeness, with its liqueur-like cassis and blueberry syrup...

This is a maturing quite savoury style of carmenere with considerable oak vanillin and nuttiness atop herbal notes...

The Errazuriz Single Vineyard Carmenère from the Max Reserva Estates was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. It is a medium to full bodied, integrated wine, with appealing aromas of jammy blackberry, pencil lead, oak, some greenage and dominating sandalwood. Tannins are refined (decant for 15-30 min) and the finish is long and smooth. Drink now or cellar for the next 5-10 years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts. Tasted Mar/12.
