Carma 2008 Carmenere

Price: Around $8

Color: Deep Ruby Red

Nose: Dark chocolate and brandied cherries

Taste: Based on the nose, I was expecting to put a liquor filled chocolate bon-bon in my mouth. And it wasn’t. But it was good. Fruity with good balance. Full bodied and dense.  Mouth filling with well defined tannins. Smooth finish.

Summary: Hearty.  This is big tasting Carmenere.  Good accompaniment to beef dishes.  Though I had it with a tuna casserole and it was great, so it likes pastas too!   Very good value here.

Interesting play on the Carmenere name.  When will somebody come up with a Karma-Chameleon Carmenere?

Produced by Carma Vineyards out of Chile’s Colchagua Valley.  Rated at 14% alcohol.

Imported by Daqopa Brands.
