La Playa "Loud River, Roaring Red" Colchagua Valley (Chile) 2005


Vinturi - toast/tar/hazelnut, deep black fruit and herb nose. Nicely integrated. Hints of leather and game, too.

Round, plush and mouth-filling. Very good concentration with moderate acid/tannin synergy adding firmness in the finish. This is remarkably good and interesting at this ridiculous price. And it has bottle age.

$11 from Doug at Feast. Tin-lined screwcap. 50% Petit Verdot, 40% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
