Casas del Bosque Reserva Carmenere 2014


SKU 59828


Deep garnet in colour with a crimson hue. On the nose this wine exhibits heady notes of raspberry, cedar and bacon fat with just a hint of fresh lavender. In the mouth an initial attack of red cherry, sweet tobacco and cinnamon gives way to just a touch of ripe bell pepper. Ripe tannins and fresh acidity combine to give good balance and length.

Wine SpectatorA well-structured and juicy style, with fresh-crushed red fruit flavors, accented by a deep well of savory herbal notes. Medium-grained tannins show on the spicy, mineral-filled finish. Drink now through 2019.

Wine AdvocateObviously, the 2014 Carménère Reserva is not from Casablanca, which is too cold for the grape, but from the Rapel Valley. It has a straightforward, fruit-driven nose with peppery and spicy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, polished tannins and a little bit of chocolate flavors in the finish, which is also slightly warm.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy spicy black-fruit aromas come with toasty, almost caramelized oak scents. This is drawing on the palate, so much so that it feels collapsed. Wood-dominant flavors of herbal black plum, coffee and carob finish candied and dry, with grabby tannins.
