Calina Valle Del Maule Carménère Reserva 2013, Chile


My Rating 84 Points. 
Price $11.

Deep red in color with a pink rim.

Earthy nose of green peppers, vanilla, oak, blackberries, cherries, blueberries, red currants, black plums, earth, black pepper, dark chocolate, coffee and smoke.

Full-bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the palate with cherries, blackberries, strawberries, red currants, plums, blackberries, oak, light vanilla, chocolate, tobacco, dirt, earth, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and peppercorn.

A nice Red from Chile. very green, like eating a salad. Nicely balanced and enjoyable by itself but way too many green notes for my taste.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
