Dec 2012 - Neal Martin - The 2010 Single Vineyard Carmenere, from the D.O. of Puemo, is raised in French oak for 12 months of which 35% is new. It has a fresh blackberry and raspberry scented nose laced with mocha and espresso, though without dominating or overwhelming the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of burnt toast on the entry. It is well balanced with dark berries, soy and cured meat with fine definition and weight on the finish.
