Sibaris Reserva Especial Carmenere 2009
Ripe, plummy, chocolaty nose, with plenty of toasty new oak and ripe dark fruit. Modest complexity but lots of appeal. Dry, medium-bodied, juicy, generous but balanced, with 14 per cent alcohol. There is a lovely freshness and immediacy to the fruit, with smooth, suave tannins and average length and depth. Enjoy this over the next 2 to 4 years with braised or grilled meats. Good by-the-glass option.
