J. & F. Lurton 2003 Alka Carmenère (Colchagua Valley)

Intensely oaked, with lemon peel and charcoal on the nose, which also features tar and crude oil. Below the surface there's cherry, red plum and concentration. Powerful, with tannin and grabby acids. Not the smoothest wine but commendable for its power. Should improve in the future; this was only the second vintage. Imported by Winesellers Ltd. Michael Schachner
