Cava Submarinas Carmenere 2006

there is an interesting story about how this wine is aged. in underwater caves in chile! when i first heard this i was skeptical. if you look into this on you tube, there are videos to prove it. not sure what this does to the wine, but i really enjoyed it. a nose of dark fruit, anise and earth. on the palate an immediate flavor of black cherry, followed by dark chocolate cordial and licorice flavors. very complex and very tasty. i have had this bottle laying in my cellar for about a year. i paid about $14 for it. a steal at that price for as big and bold a wine as this was.

coming soon…a visit to a local ohio winery where they produce some very exciting wines.
