Concha Y Toro Carmenere Carmin de Peumo 2005

Concha Y Toro Carmenere Carmin de Peumo 750ml 2005         
Sku: 18004

Tasting notes
Carmin de Peumo is a dark and deep red with violet nuances. Elegant and complex with a great deal of black fruit; plums and blackberries with hints of gooseberries and tobacco. Well-structured, filling, bitter chocolate, sweet tannins, vigorous and concentrated. Thick with an oily texture, its rich fruity base ends in a long finish.

Review
The Carmin de Peumo is the winery flagship and a candidate for Chile’s finest wine. The 2005 Carmin de Peumo Carmenere (I reviewed the 2003 in Issue 171, there was no 2004 produced) is a blend of the best parcels in the Peumo Vineyard. It spent 20 months in French oak and was bottled without fining or filtration. Purple/black in color, this profound effort gives up an amazing aromatic array of wood smoke, scorched earth, leather, espresso, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to an opulent, extraordinarily rich, nearly over the top, sumptuous wine with deeply hidden structure, exceptional balance, and which manages to remain light on its feet despite its immense power. It can be enjoyed now but will be so much better in 5-7 years. It is a tour de force!

Rating
Driven and pure, with remarkably supple tannins guiding the black currant, plum, graphite and melted dark licorice notes. Picks up additional loam and coffee notes on the finish, but stays fine-grained and stylish despite its weight. Also contains Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2009 through 2015. 1,000 cases made. –JM

Food pairing
Enjoy Carmin de Peumo Carmenere with game, lamb, and beef with spicy sauces and robust cheese.
