Root: 1 Carmenere

imageLCBO#: 350546
Price: $12.80
Made in: Colchagua Valley, Chile
By: Vina Ventisquero LTDA.

First off, beautiful presentation with a green bottle, and the label painted over it. To top everything, a scarf-tag around the neck. Now, can this inexpensive red wine hold up for the rest. The nose definitely does, with a powerful aroma of black cherries and peppery spices. The taste was a letdown at first sip, until I had something to eat, and then the flavours really came out. Not too much tannins, not too dry, but well-balanced for these two characteristics. Red berries with mild sweetness and smokiness. Hints of vanilla blending things together. Quite good for the price, so a great one to buy to bring at a friend’s supper.
