"I tasted the 2008 Carmín de Peumo, which has been in bottle since December 2009, to follow its evolution in bottle. The Carmenere was blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc and was aged in 90% new French oak for 17 months. They brought me this wine because they didn't produce it in 2015 or 2016, and the 2017 was not ready and not bottled, but they think 2018 is a very similar vintage to 2008. It has a developed and classical nose with those notes of tobacco and something earthy, with a distinct note of tar. But the palate is fresh, and it has 14% alcohol. It's elegant, fresh and what Carmenere should be. It's still young and lively, with years ahead in bottle. 19,200 bottles were produced. The classical triangle for growing Carmenere is Peumo, Apalta and Pichidegua. Other than that, it's too difficult..." - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com (Oct 13, 2018)
