Cono Sur Bicycle Carmenere 2008
This wine's deep, beautiful red-carmine colour is typical of the variety it represents so well. A delicious and velvety Carmenere, which displays red fruit aromas combining perfectly with spicy hints. In mouth it's definitely an intense wine, tasty, juicy and elegant. Appreciate its excellent structure and a balanced acidity. Drink young: from 2 to 3 years. Food Pairing: It's a good choice for almost any type of meat. Also, different kinds of pâté and cold cuts are a good option to begin with. A few dishes that go great with this wine are meat stews, sautéed lamb chops, lentils or beans soups, and stuffed tacos or burritos. As far as cheeses are concerned, it pairs well with blue cheeses, and hard ones like Asiago.
Wine SpectatorVery juicy, with forward, tasty flavors of plum, blackberry, tobacco and roasted vanilla. There's a nice dash of grip on the finish. Drink now.
