Viniterra "Select" Carmenere, Mendoza 2006

Deep red.

Vinturi - rich nose of herbs, chocolate, black cherry and light toast.

Interesting mouthfeel - nice breadth, but quite focused too. A medicinal/saline quality shows up. Good length. This could easily be confused with something from Oz. The finish is bound up by acid/tannin/saline synergy. Also from Lujan de Cuyo.
