Ventisquero Grey (Glacier) Carmenère - Chile - 2014
4.5

Pleasant and smooth with overpowering truffle notes on the nose and palate; that’s a good thing. Silky sulky tannins and lush acidity ensure this won’t overwhelm whatever plate you pair it with. Fruit notes are currant and plum, but dipped in leather and brimstone. Has the bright fruit of a carmene but the layered sophistication of a cab. Allow to sit 1 hour for more goodness.
