Carmen Merlot 2007

So far in 2009, Chile has not been able to hold a torch to it's previous growth years which showed excellent wines at even better values. Hopefully this will turn around soon.
After reading the label that the people at Vina Carmen decided best represented this vintage, I was expecting a hit. I was wrong...actually their label mislead me. Specifically when they prepared you for a finish showing "soft tannins and a lingering fruit finish" I didn't taste either and the finish was far too hot.
Tip: chill more than usual
