2008 Concha y Toro Carmenère "Carmín de Peumo" Terrunyo

SKU #1399260 94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Profound in its depth of flavor, ranging from herbs and tart cherries to figs, this is a huge and concentrated carmenère. Still a baby, this needs three years or more in bottle to begin to evolve and show its layers of complexity. Ignacio Recabarren selects this wine from one block (parcel 32) planted in the 1980s on a rocky terrace of the Cachapoal River. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

Outer quote mark I tasted the 2008 Carmín de Peumo, which has been in bottle since December 2009, to follow its evolution in bottle. The Carmenere was blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc and was aged in 90% new French oak for 17 months. They brought me this wine because they didn't produce it in 2015 or 2016, and the 2017 was not ready and not bottled, but they think 2018 is a very similar vintage to 2008. It has a developed and classical nose with those notes of tobacco and something earthy, with a distinct note of tar. But the palate is fresh, and it has 14% alcohol. It's elegant, fresh and what Carmenere should be. It's still young and lively, with years ahead in bottle. (LG) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Price aside, this is a fine, ready to drink, full-bodied Carmenère with earth, cola, tree bark, cherry and cassis aromas. It's full and a touch soft in the mouth, with easy tannins and bold flavors of blackberry, herbs, bitter chocolate and leather. On the finish, it's peppery tasting and mildly herbal.

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This dark, racy red displays an extra dimension to the slowly unfolding kirsch, plum sauce and cassis flavors, with maduro tobacco, grilled rosemary and espresso bean notes. Well-focused and fine-tuned through the long finish. (NW) Inner quote mark (10/2012)
