Every year one of Chile's most earnestly made Carmenères is Terrunyo, and the 2004, while a touch softer and less focused than the '03, is still a very nice wine that offers the best this grape can deliver. It's a plump internationally-styled red with berry syrup and chocolate flavors, while the finish is rich, chewy and smooth. Drink now through 2008.
