Chono Reserva Carmenère 2006, Maipo Valley - $12


So I think I've turned MS and SD on to Carmenère, which I absolutely love! They picked up this one at Whole Foods.

Aroma - chocolate, caramel
Taste - tobacco, dry, nice tannins

This is the second time I've had this particular wine, and I really, really enjoy it!

Brian from Virtuoso Selections (the distributor for this wine) says that at a wine tasting for Houston sommeliers involving many, many expensive wines, Chono Carmenère was actually the top pick! Great to know!
