2008 Vina Von Siebenthal Carmenere Reserva Single Vineyard Aconcagua (Previously $15)

SKU #1064920

One of our favorite carmeneres has taken a serious price reduction, due to a change of importers. For $10, not only is this our best carmenere value, it is also one of our very best red wine values for the money. If you've never had carmenere before, this would be a terrific introduction, with its slightly savory, smoky nuances showing plenty of the grape's typicity, without sacrificing balance or elegance in the process.

This is my favorite wine under $10. The von Siebenthal carmenere is a great introduction to carmenere for those who have not tried this varietal. It's nose has a distinct coffee aroma and a hint of vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with some complexity and soft tannins. I read somewhere that a carmenere is a cabernet with silk pajamas. This wine is a good example of that description.
Drink from 2011 to 2013

Chile

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine. Click for a list of bestselling items from Chile.
