Carménère Review – CityScape Winery

Carménère grape imported fresh from Chilè.

Grape hand crushed and destemmed.

Single barrel aged.

Limited Release, only 300 bottles produced.

Dark Crimson in color.

Floral and spicy on the nose. Excellent aroma!

Medium to Full bodied.

Medium tannins.

Bold notes of black pepper on the tongue, black cherry, over ripe dark plum, and a strong spicy finish.

Would benefit from decanting.

Paired exceptionally well with the smoked brisket.

Personal scoring on the American Wine Society twenty point scale.

Appearance: 3

Aroma: 5

Taste: 5

Aftertaste: 3

Impression: 2

Total: 18 — Gold Medal worthy!

Priced at $28 a bottle.

Should age beautifully.
