Carmen Gran Reserva

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008

Chile Red

Maipo 75cl

A tasty and plush reserva style of Cabernet.
Has similar sweet fruits to the Merlot I tried last week but thankfully not as herbal (somewhat surprisingly for Cab)
The fruit seems more blue than black with the traditional cassis (whilst present) playing second fiddle to more plum and prune flavours initially. Nice and complex in the middle with hints of chocolate and spice to add to the fruit.
Quite immediate and juicy for a Gran Reserva and I think it's porbably pretty well priced too
