Perez Cruz Reserva Carmenere 2007

I profess that I am not particularly experienced with the carmenere grape variety.  Tasted blind, this wine had a very particular and unusual aroma that I associate with some Chilean wines ie I guessed the wine was from Chile.  A winemaker friend said the aroma was one of incredibly youthful, but simple, fruit - to me, it was almost bubblegum like - perhaps it's the oak used.  Anyway onto the wine: this wine had an aroma of sour plums, socks, chewing gum and intense herbs.  A palate of blackfruits, tannin and noticeable acidity.  Not my style I'm afraid.  77 points.
