Terra Noble

Central Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The notes on the 2016 CA 1 apply here as well. (nose of black fruit and cassis, painted with cedar, clove and cinnamon. The palate is alive with the dark berry notes and oak spice, and a monstrous set of tannins that need some decant time to soften.) This is a wild wine, full of aromas and flavors, brimming with tannins, ready to rumble. — 18 days ago

Terra Noble

Gran Reserva Maule Valley Carmenere 2017

This Carménère shows a world of difference from the others in the TerraNoble line I’ve been trying. There is a boatload of dark fruit, to be sure, with black cherry getting into the act. The tannins are more reserved upon pouring while the acidity remains bright and juicy. It’s an excellent example of Chilean Carménère.

CA 1 Andes Colchagua Valley Carménère 2016

This dark wine offers a nose of black fruit and cassis, painted with cedar, clove and cinnamon. The very expressive aromas put me in mind of the holidays. The palate is alive with the dark berry notes and oak spice, and a monstrous set of tannins that need some decant time to soften. Don’t worry, the wine will still handle any steak you put in front of it.

Gran Reserva Maule Valley Carignan 2018

This inky wine has a slightly medicinal nose, with blackberry and tar notes. The tannins are forceful to a fault upon opening. Let it sit awhile and allow them to be less inflamed. The fruit is fairly forefront, possibly due to the aging of half the wine in concrete eggs. The savory finish is quite long and satisfying.

Central Valley Chardonnay 2017

The nose on this version of TerraNoble’s Carménère hits more bright red and blue notes than the two I tried previously. The palate is a lot calmer, too, although the tannins hold their own. It’s a more user-friendly Carménère, and more fun to drink on its own.
