Casa Silva Carmenère Reserva 2005

Much like the Cabernet reviewed below, a classic Chilean nose of eucalyptus and mint opens the Casa Silva Carmenère Reserva 2005, followed by dark currant and plum fruit on the palate and a dry, spicy finish. Dry and medium-bodied with firm but not disagreeable tannins, this Chilean would be an excellent companion to a grilled Porterhouse. Priced at $12, it's a good value.
