  • 08 Santa Carolina Reserva Carmenere (Rapel Valley): Brings the QPR like Thor brought the Mjölner hammer down on those horny Nordic giants. #
  • 07 Odfjell Armador Carmenere (Chile): Tar, spice & earthiness. Like any given patch of said earth, solid if unremarkable. #
  • 07 Vui Manent Carmenere Reserva (Colchagua Valley): The supple mouthfeel will reward you for getting past the overly-green pepper nose. #
  • 07 Cono Sur Vision Carmenere (Colchagua Valley): Trip through the farm! First the barnyard, then thru green peppers, & stop at a berry patch #
  • 08 Vina La Rosa 'La Capitana' Carmenere (Colchagua Valley): Crazy good value with cocoa powder, plum & the faintest hint of green pepper. #
  • 07 Ventisquero Grey Carmenere (Maipo Valley): Pine cones & cough syrup. With that taste, I should have saved this for when I had bronchitis. #
  • 07 Terra Andina Altos Carmenere-Carignan (Central Valley): Dark Dr. Pepper meets stewed red fruits, and makes quick work of your flank steak #
  • 04 Carmen Winemaker's Reserve Red (Maipo Valley): VG Bord'x style blend. Sexy, sophisticated, refined, elegant, & pretty darn expensive. #
  • 07 Olson Ogden Wines Unti Vineyard Syrah (Dry Creek Valley): Like Juggernaut from the X-Men, but made of potent kick-ass red berry fruit. #
  • 08 Grooner Gruner Veltliner (Kremstal): Tart, citrusy & very capable intro. to Austria's answer to Sauv Blanc. Unleash it on a salad course. #
  • 06 Heron Hill Ingle vineyard Riesling (Finger Lakes): I wanted to stick a straw into this lime awesomeness & just suck down the entire thing #
  • 05 Kanu Kia-Ora Noble Late Harvest (Stellenbosch): Like almond brittle made with apricot & doused in kerosene. But in a totally good way. #
  • 06 Rockaway Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley): It seems criminal to open it this early. Give it 6 yrs to unfold its multilayered magic. #
  • NV Pommery Champagne Brut Royal (Reims): Smaller than a breadbox, but somehow they managed to get the entire loaf in the bottle anyway. #
