Corralillo Reserve 2005

this blend from chile is made of 80% merlot, 12% malbec and 8% cabernet franc. the nose was red berries and spice. there were also hints of chocolate and leather, and a little something that resembled twigs on the nose. the bottle had been laying down for almost a year so i was excited at the chance to taste this interesting blend. if the nose was any indication, this was going to be a very nice wine. and i was not disappointed. very full in the mouth with complex flavors. the taste was blackberry, strawberry, leather and medium tannins. it has a medium length finish and i got more of the berries at the end. the wine sells for $16-20 depending on where you shop and very worthy.
