Wine of the Week for August 17, 2009

Santa Alicia Carmenere Reserve 2008 - $11.95
Style: R2


The colour here is deep black cherry. The nose is a bit closed right now, but still offers up aromas of black berry, plum and “oil skin” with evident oak. The palate is very smooth, with soft tannins and chocolate/cherry flavours, medium body and length. This is a well made and elegant wine that will show well in time or, if you prefer, serve it with roasts, lamb or turkey. (LCBO 309302)
