2006 Emiliana "Natura" Carmenere (Chile)
An organic wine from Chile's Emiliana Organico, the Natura is a new label from the eco-conscious producer. Made from carmenere (87%), syrah (4%), petite verdot (4%) and malbec (1%) grown in Los Robles, in the Colchagua Valley, the wine is an intense red color. Its bouquet is seductive, with notes of chocolate, black fruits, toffee and spices. On the palate the wine is voluminous, with soft, round tannins and firm structure. There's a nice balance between fruit and oak and a lingering, sweet finish.
