If density is your thing, try this deep purple-colored offering from an up-and-coming Colchagua Valley producer—it's the perfect value-priced introduction to the upside of Carmenère. Sweet in the nose and mouth, with tons of almost overripe plums and chocolate. Still, the wild and spicy side of the grape is also here. Best Buy.
