Alcance

Gran Reserva Valle del Maule Carménère

Really delicious and velvety carmenere. Leather and smoke on the nose. Blue/black fruit on the palate without the sweetness. Nice structure and balance, and with just a touch of acidity to make it very gulpable. Dry and tannic and lovely — 17 days ago
