    Winemaker's Notes:

    #63 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    Dark, deep red. Hints of berries, chocolate, cigar box, pepper and mineral notes on the nose. Tasty and full-bodied with a bright, deep red color. It is an elegant, powerful wine which lingers in the mouth.

    Enjoy the distinctive taste of Terrunyo Carmenere with meats, aged cheeses and pastas.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The red wines start with the saturated purple 2006 Carmenere Peumo Vineyard Block 27. The nose offers up spice box, mineral, plum, black cherry, and blueberry. This is followed by a round, mouth-filling plush wine with ripe underlying tannin, complex, spicy flavors, excellent density, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2012 to 2021.

    Terrunyo is a premium label owned by Concha y Toro. During my visit with Ignacio Recabarren, the brilliant vigneron behind the Terrunyo Carmenere project, I was able to taste all of the wine to date including the yet to be released 2007 Carmin de Peumo.

    Dark in profile, with plum and currant fruit, but very pure, with silky tannins and a long, stylish finish that lets incense, spice and mineral notes play out. Drink now through 2011. 8,500 cases made.

    Inky ruby. Suave aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and licorice. A smoky note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet red and black fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins. Sappy red fruits linger on the long, nicely focused finish. This is complex enough to drink now but I'd hold off for at least another couple of years.

    nose: spicy, charcoal, fruity (berry). the spicy part doesn't come out until the wine warms up taste: a hint of citrus and smokey favor. the fruitiness continues to dominate. the tannin is indeed v. silky like the critics have pointed out. finish: light and smooth, but would be enough to remind you to pour yourself another glass
