Apaltagua 2008 Envero Gran Reserva Carmenère-Cabernet Sauvignon (Colchagua Valley)

Disappointing considering how much I've liked this wine in the past. But the '08 is funky and very much from the old school of Carmenère, meaning it's dull-edged, thick, herbal and overly earthy on the nose and palate. Just too heavy, roasted and peppery for my liking. With 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Michael Schachner
