This Agustinos Carmenère 2006 from Chile has both of us swooning. It is a deep, blackish violet in the glass. The nose is extravagant — cherries, spice, pepper, and oak. The taste is plum and boysenberries. The finish is densely fruity with velvety tannins. The taste lingers a long, long time. This wine would be great with spaghetti or lasagne but — alas — we are having leftover soup for dinner. It’s Friday night and we are just happy to be at the front end of the weekend. Cheers!
Tom: This Agustinos Caramenère 2006 is delicious. Big, tannic, chocolaty, cherries and berries. Excellent.
