Casa Silva 2015 Carménère “Los Lingues Vineyard, Valle de Colchagua”, Chile ($20)
Carménères can be too tannic for many tastes, but this is a fine exception. Its strong personality expresses rich fruit on the attack, which is quickly joined by pleasing core tannins followed by excellent complexity.
Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
