Errazuriz Carmenère 2009 Aconcagua Valley

Tasted 10/10. Currently £5.49 Majestic, also Tesco.
I love this as a everyday food wine. When I think what awful, thin and acidic '£5' wines there are around- wine of this quality might cost you £25 in a restaurant. Bright purple, black pepper and tobacco 'cigar box' nose. Rich and tannic, good now but needs another year. Damsons and stewed fruit on the palate. Very clean and well made, delicious, excellent VFM. Winemaker Francisco Baettig comes up trumps again. I hate to think how much you'd have to pay to get this quality in the Old World. 16.5 / 20.
