WTN: Cremaschi Furlotti Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah-Carmenere 2003

From Chile's Maule Valley.

A 60-20-20 blend.

Decanted. The wine took quite a while to open up, but it was worth it.

Dark purple in the glass.

A slowly opening nose, which eventually revealed juniper, anise, herbs, and milk chocolate.

Intially, quite tannic and drying, vanilla, cloves, black cherry-raspberry, tarry, anise, black olives, gaining a fuller body and showing fleshier fruit and some creaminess with time.

A drying finish, with some creaminess.

Will be a much better wine with a year to 18 months in a cellar.

Purchase at $17.95 Canadian.

Given my positive experience with a Chilean Merlot-dominated blend (Veramonte), I need to look for this one.
