2007 Concha y Toro Carmenere Terrunyo Carmin de Peumo Peumo Vineyard
Producer: Concha y Toro
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Carmenere
94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
($150; includes 9% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc) Inky-violet. Exhilarating, kaleidoscopic aromas of musky blackberry, boysenberry, Indian spices, mocha, violet and licorice. Compellingly velvety and sweet on entry, then shockingly vibrant and delineated in the mid-palate, further enhanced by explosive dark fruit compote and floral pastille flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Extremely rich but there's an unlikely weightless quality to this wine. Completely stains the palate with dense dark fruit and finishes with superb, floral-accented persistence. I also had the chance to taste the 2005 version, which is closed up tight right now but shows excellent concentration. The excellent 2008, which might be released next year, is showing even more aromatic complexity than the '07 right now but lacks this wine's richness and heft. This bottling is only made in years that are deemed exceptional and there are 1,500 cases of it to go around.
