Arboleda 2007 Valle de Colchagua Carmenere

Opaque in the glass, cherry red at the rim.

Vanilla oak predominates the smell, over-riding various dark stone fruits.

Plum and black cherry fruit, bittersweet chocolate, big taste of oak.

Very good full-bodied bottle for $18.99, over-use of new oak notwithstanding. Worked well as a pizza wine, as it did with cold leftover pizza.
