Veranda Cabernet – Carmenere 2009

Total Wine & More, $17.99

Aaron:  The label won some points for me – simple and clean but elegant.  Inside the bottle, this Chilean wine boasted cherries and bark on the nose. Boysenberry flavors were supported by mild tannins, developing a full flavor with boisterous raspberries and a mild hint of chocolate. 90 points

Teri: I first tried this bottle at our local Total Wine and fell in love with the unique flavors of the cab-carmenere blend. Don’t be fooled by the woody-oak smell with just a hint of berry. The flavor is uniquely boysenberry with caramel/chocolate and carries incredibly smooth tannins. Overall, a fun bottle that is both memorable and a delight to enjoy. Give to someone or enjoy on your own. 91 points
