Falernia 2007 Reserva Carmenère-Syrah (Elqui Valley)
Aromas of burnt leaves, grilled meat and rubber/tar are sort of hard and dominant, but the palate is brighter and fruity, with lively raspberry and plum along with carob and olive flavors. Good but seems slightly stalky/herbal on the finish. Michael Schachner

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
