Sepia Reserva Cachapoal Valley Carmenère 2016

Not one of the best that I’ve had. I had to let this one sit over night. It was so earthy I could barely stand it, especially for a Carmenère. Not so bad tonight. blackberry and tea leaves yet still a little earthy on the nose but does have a nice finish. — 5 days ago

Casa Lapostolle

Apalta Vineyard Cuvée Alexandre Merlot 2010

Dense purple in the glass. The nose of cassis, black fruits, a little smoke and cedar opened up over the course of dinner. A saturated palate of ripe blackberries and dark cherries is bolstered by lively acidity, firm but unobtrusive tannins and a finish with focus and length. Straightforward but balanced with good structure. — a month ago

9.1

2010 D.O.N. is dark purple in the glass. Medium+ body and a palate that made me think Malbec and not its blend dominant CS-PV. — 7 days ago

Carmen

Gran Reserva El Peñasco Vineyard Carménère 2015

Wafting cacao rubbed green pepper.
This nose easily becomes the tasting profile of the wine, a touch of pepper, and a delicate tomatillo acidity that rounds it all out.
Classic garden plant throughout.
Yum.

Interesting background.

Purple Angel Colchagua Valley Carménère Petit Verdot 2012

2012 Purple Angel. Camenere grapes surround your taste buds as if you’re standing in a field of violets. A gem that requires the delicate hand of the jeweler to coax out the layers of flavors, blue & black berries fresh picked from the vine along with hints of vanilla bean & dark chocolate.
Silence is deafening, required & golden.
Shhh, be quiet, come a little closer. 🤫
