Carmenere Might Be My New Favourite Varietal.

Tasted a few Carmeneres at the Vancouver International and this was one of the good ones.
Lots of ripe plum and blackberry. Intelligent use of oak. Plenty of body.
It was 16.99 and another good reason to buy right at the festival store as it isn't listed in this province. If you want to put some pressure on the BCLDB to bring it in the number is 739391.
It's a 2004 so I'll expect to cellar it a few more years.
