Nose: Spicy blackberries
Taste: Smooth, really rolls off the tongue nicely. Good tannins, you’d think this bottle was a few years old. Fairly balanced. Good flavor
Summary: At $4 yes its a table wine. And not a bad table wine at that. This goes great with any hearty meal. Stews, meat and potatos. Not a bad Carmenere especially at $4.
This wine can only be found at Fresh & Easy stores to my knowledge. Last week I tasted their sauvignon blanc and was very disappointed.
Some will say, Boris, what do you expect for $3.99? If it makes it to a store shelf, I expect a decent every day drinker for $6 (from Chile). Which the blanc was not, but this Carmenere makes up for that experience. Don’t be afraid to try this one. Another Chilean wine value has been found.
