Casa Silva 2005 Microterroir de Los Lingues Carmenère (Colchagua Valley)

Casa Silva's take on high-end, expensive Carmenère is solid but not what you'd call a home run at nearly $50. Like 95% of Chile's varietal Carmenère wines, it's herbal on the nose, with aromas of baked beans, bell pepper, smoked meat and stewed berries. The palate is dark and roasted, with cola and herbal plum flavors. Seems bitter and dark on the finish, and overall it's a bull among calves. Super strong and driving. Michael Schachner
