Carménère

Massal 1945 Family Vineyards

Clos de Luz Carmenere 2016

A welcoming nose of ripe black fruits such as cassis and plum, dark chocolate, black tea leafs, and bell pepper. The palate is warm and deep, and velvety, with a taste echoing the nose. Polished tannins and long sweet finish. The bell pepper note might be a turn off for some, but I like it a lot here.
From vines dating back to 1945 that are genetically different (hence massal selection, as opposed to a single clone). Casa Lapostolle used to buy the grapes for the Clos Apalta bottling.

Viña Tarapacá

Reserva Maipo Valley Carménère 2015

Dark ruby red color. Strong smells of fresh pepper, salsa, pomegranate, and smoke. Pretty healthy tannins with tastes of cherries, plums, minerals, bell peppers, cigar box, and vanilla. Will be pairing with a bowl of chicken chili in an effort to compliment but not overwhelm the peppers. — 6 days ago

Microterroir De Los Lingues Carménère 2009

Wow. Caramel wafting..

For a 10 year old Carmenere, this wine is insanely good.
Taken next to some fossils, the picture represent longevity.
Medium bodied with blackberry, cherry, and some citrus. All to be bombed by a lovely heap of green pepper. Lingering tannins with tropical acidity.
Yum!
