Terrunyo Carmenere 2003 wine review by (PB)

NW and bride were up for the weekend with added surprise of our LA daughter with our newest grandson. Special occasions mean the wine must flow! (NW) brought this treat with him.

This Cachapoal Valley Chilean wine from the folks at Concha Y Toro is another one of their marvelous creations. On the pour it is a deep black cherry color that coats the glass.

Bouquet is so lush with black cherry and blackberry fruit laced with a touch of mint, I want to get a fork to spear the whole berries.

In the mouth it is full bodied with loads of dark heavy fruit and rich tannins, and cocoa powder.

Breathe this wine for an hour or so. It has nice mouth feel and is just plain wine pleasure.

(NW) paid $30 for this wine and even though Fred Franzia says no wine is worth more than $10, I’d raise a glass of this anytime!
