2008 Terra Noble Gran Reserva Carmenere

Ruby with some purple. On the nose, youthful, with medium intensity, cherry, tobacco, bell pepper, coffee, with a bit of wet earth, and layered oak. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, dry, nicely balanced, bright dark berry fruit, inky bell pepper, with layered chocolate, and loaded with roasted espresso bean, with a solid finish. At a previous tasting I thought that this wine nailed the coffee component harder than anything I’d ever had before, at this tasting I liked how balanced with fruit it was.
