2010 Carmen Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

Carmen Cabernet Sauvignon, Alto Maipo ($35) 14% Vol.

A delicious wine to sum up year 2016.

This bottle of Carmen has aged pass 3 Christmas. It has a strong fruity, blackcurrant aromas that linger on our palates, while the alcohol bites lightly. All sweet and smoky bitter at the same time, i simply couldn't separate them. Great body and length, balanced acidity.

A rare good wine from Chile, when most of theirs are too spicy.
