Apaltagua Envero Carmenere 2000
from Chile, South America
This unusual variety can produce some exceptionally good red wine, and this is one of the best! Think of this wine as having the charm of Merlot with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon - a smooth, seductive wine made by one of Chile's leading winemaker's, Alvaro Espinoza. A complex offering, at a price that can't be beat, Envero is 76% Carmenere and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its dark, rich fruit is complemented by eight months in French oak. All the fruit comes from the prestigious Apalta region of Colchagua, with the vines over 50 years old.

Very interesting....just popped the bottle, poured without delay, and enjoying as we speak. Dark fruit with alot of oak....I suspect this one is going to settle down in the next few hours and impress me, so I am going out to buy a tuna steak for the grill. Im half way through my first glass and I am already giving myself a pat on the back for a great find at a good value. Think it will improve on the second glass.....enjoy!
