Carmenere, Santa Rita 05'

Naked Wine Review 7
Wine: 120 Carmenere
Vintage: 05'
Producer: Santa Rita
Region: Chile>Valle Central>Alto Jahuel
Price: 9.00
Date tasted: 3/20/08 
Place tasted: While wondering the obsidian back alleys of I'mSoLostVille
Served with: A Vernal Equinox/full moon sandwich, but would be really good with dark Posh Chocolate, blueberries/berries, creme brulee...and any cheese (especially brie).
Appearance: Intense garnet with violet sparkles 
Taste: Seriously challenging fruity flavor with a long, spicy afterglow of lingering naked pleasure
Bouquet: A delightfully complex and decant bouquet.
This baby packs a polite punch to the snoot with sweet/musky sandalwood hits swirled up in spice and fruit. 
Balance: Light bodied and elegant 
Comments: A peridoxical fellow,  comes on flirtatious and sweet cuddles your palate like a kitten and finishes leaving you light, dry, and care free. I like that in a wine. NOTE:After breathing a couple of hours this wine is enveloped in a soft vanilla cloud, and oh... wait a couple hours, it's sooo worth it. God it's good, buy it!
