Clos du Jaugueyron

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Med + concentration but just see through. Ruby core with brick rim. Med intensity and med + complexity on the nose showing mostly classic #leftbank characteristics. However there was a strong paprika aroma that reminded me of #chile #carmenere The fruit was ripe and black and red. Fine structure on the palate with med + tannin and med acid and abv. The notes mimicked what I found on the nose. A supple medium finish. This was missing concentration but for the price this is a nice #bordeaux #hautmedoc #closdujaugueyron #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #petitverdot #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

This #chilean wine is showing well but lacks excitement and complexity. The tannins and alcohol are present. Some fun characteristics came out after a decant. The fruit is black and blue but lacks definition and excitement. #colchaguavalley #espirtudeapalta #chile #carmenere #neyen #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Opaque. Elevated alcohol on the nose along with med + complexity dominated by black fruit, paprika, and chocolate. Full bodied and silky on the palate. Nicely structured and a fine finish. #montes #carmenere #purpleangel #colchagua #blend #chile #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Santa Rita

Reserva Colección Privada Valle Central Carmenere 2014

For an $8 #Carmenere you really can't go wrong with this. Medium bodied with dark dry Berry flavors that evolve into a little green pepper skin. Smooth transition from start to finish with a dash of fresh ground black pepper. A lot of a character for $8. — 3 years ago

Gran Reserva Alto Colchagua Carménère 2012

Barn, Italian herb blend (thyme, oregano, rosemary), and subtle floral on the nose. Linear and dry with a subtle berry finish. #carmenere #chile — 3 years ago

I think this #Carmenere #Wine is suffering from partial improper malo fermentation. Even after a couple hours, hydro sulfide still present. Simple, smooth, slightly bitter. Slightly flawed.

Gran Reserva Alto Colchagua Carménère 2012

A good example of #Chile #carmenere This vintage has seen some heat. Heavy nose of damp earth, Luxardo cherry and faint bell pepper with time.

Smooth palate. Remember more coffee/espresso character.

Casa Lapostolle

Clos Apalta Limited Release Carménère Blend 2005

This is my second time tasting this #vintage of #closapalta from #lapostolle No question that this is a huge wine but it is pretty well balanced for an 11 year old #chilean wine with 15% abv. Firm tannins, medium acid, and strong black, blue, and red fruit. After 3 hours exposed to the air the finish on the wine became bitter. I don't have super high hopes for this wine being fully mature but I am definitely intrigued about what could develop. #chile #colchagua #carmenere — 4 years ago
