"Concha y Toro's Terrunyo Carmenere gets my vote as the finest Carmenere produced in Chile. The 2004 Carmenere is other-worldly. Opaque purple in color, it has a sexy perfume of smoky oak, blueberry jam, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by an ultra-rich, unique wine with sensational depth, concentration and tons of flavor. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 20+ years. The winery also presented a vertical tasting of other Terrunyo Carmeneres. Among them were the 1999 (93 points), 2001 (94 points), 2003 (95 points) and a barrel sample of the 2005 (92-94 points)... among the greatest values in red wine anywhere."
Deep, intense and ruby-red in color, with shades of leather and chocolate skillfully intermingled with dark fruits. Great character and finesse. This wine is mainly defined by its great elegance and sophistication.
This wine is an excellent accompaniment to leg of lamb with spicy sauces, blue cheese, Gruyere and Emmentaler.
Absolutely one of the best bottles of wine I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. Rich, velvety flavors explode onto your pallet with wonderful ending. Ever since I have enjoyed this bottle, I have continued to search for more of this year. This is easily worth3-4 times what I orginally paid for it.
One of the best wines I've ever consumed. Complex, elegant, average tannins and lots of spice.
