I profess that I am not particularly experienced with the carmenere grape variety. Tasted blind, this wine had a very particular and unusual aroma that I associate with some Chilean wines ie I guessed the wine was from Chile. A winemaker friend said the aroma was one of incredibly youthful, but simple, fruit – to me, it was almost bubblegum like – perhaps it’s the oak used. Anyway onto the wine: this wine had an aroma of sour plums, socks, chewing gum and intense herbs. A palate of blackfruits, tannin and noticeable acidity. Not my style I’m afraid. 77 points.
