The new wine love of my life is the Carmen vinyards (Chile) Carmenere cab blend. It's about a $15 bottle, but Trader Joe's brought it in on a one time buy for $6.99. I bought the last bottle today... and boy, is it delightful.
Its got a deep berry and curent nose with a hint of pipe tabacco and smoke (cedar).
Its got smooth tannins, a touch of spice, suble berry flavors and a smoky finish. Thin legs. Delightful i say, delightful. It actually tastes like a $15 bottle of wine.
Also, amazing with a smooth dark chocolate.
sigh. (yes, i am swooning in to my glass)
