2012 Casa Silva Carménère Colchagua Valley

SKU #1136635

The Silva family pioneered grapegrowing in the Colchagua Valley with the first vineyards back in 1892. They also have the oldest cellar in the valley. Colchagua is one of the most noteworthy regions for growing black grapes and produces some of the richest and most powerful red wines. The Casa Silva is an inky deep purple color with black currant and black cherry flavors. It has notes of sage, capsicum, grilled rosemary, cardamom and clove. It is youthful and expressive and should drink nicely now over the next few years, maybe even longer. A lot of wine for a very low price.

The Casa Silva is a cleaner version of carmenere. It is full bodied and luscious with purple fruit flavors and a touch of herb that reminds you that you are drinking carmenere. Perfect with some grilled skirt steak.

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.
