Panilonco Reserve Carmenere

2009
Colchagua Valley, Chile

OK, folks — this is one of the best values I’ve had in ages! $4 a bottle at Trader Joe’s. FOUR. BUCKS. And it’s one tasty glassful, brimming with berries and oak and a surprising hit of mint. Smells like blackberries and plums and spice. The finish lingers, and it’s just a wee bit tart (this mellows out with some breathing). Mildly tannic, big but not bold: a gentle giant.

    A new friend gave me this as a thank you gift. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Wonderful is what I got! Reminded me of Kendall Jackson merlot but milder, and I guess way cheaper! It will be part of my wine cabinet from now on! I highly recommend it. Blackberries and Oak… you can’t go wrong! Thank you Omar!
