Oveja Negra 2006 wine review by (BP)
This is a Chilean blend of Cabernet Franc and Carmenere. The hue of this wine whose name means "Black Sheep" is black cherry in tone with some garnet depth. Mineral notes highlight a lighter medium red berry thrust in the nose.
Palate is spicy with bready front and coarse flavors that are tight and unresolved with a bitter finish.
With air, there are musty notes with earthy tones and white pepper on the palate. Even at $10 I just didn't care for this wine; the style or the blend. Pass on this puppy!
