Natalie's Review

Botalcura La Porfia Carmenere Grand Reserve 2005, Rapel Valley, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: Founding partner Philippe Debrus worked for many years as a winemaker in his native France before adopting Chile as his home in 1996. A fortunate meeting with Juan Fernando Waidele in 2001 led to a partnership and the birth of Botalcura. Debrus designed much of the gravity-fed winemaking facilities himself. A textbook Carménère, his barrel-aged Grand Reserve shows plenty of plum and blackberry fruit as well as notes of red pepper and tobacco. Well-structured with ample tannin and acidity. My note: A meaty, delicious red with savory notes of red plum and cassis. Full-bodied. Great value. 61887 14% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 90/100. August 16, 2008  Full Review
