Concha y Toro Terrunyo (Block 27) 2006 Carménère

Concha y Toro Terrunyo (Block 27) 2006 Carménère, $27.74-$31.99, 92+ points, poured core black turning almost blood red near the clear rim.
Richly evocative aromas of morning fresh lake waters (think when you were fishing as a child), blueberry, plum, cedar, and earth notes leapt out of the glass.
Full-bodied with good acidity, layered supportive tannin, aromas reflected throughout the palate with black cherry, cola, licorice and savory notes all made for great balance and complexity.
Finished well on accelerating spice, oak, and a kiss of the 14% alcohol.
If you are going to the Wine Week tastings, and haven't tasted Carménère, and want to, I think you'll be amazed at the pristine quality of Concha y Toro Terrunyo (Block 27).
Oh, if you are like me, you'll ask: (carmenere).
