Don’s February Collector’s Series Top Picks

Casa_Silva_Microterroir_Carmenere-2005Nobody makes better Carmenère than the legendary “King of Carmenère,” Mario Geise, and we know of no better Carmenère than the 2005 Casa Silva Microterroir.  Critics have dubbed the iconic 2005 Casa Silva Microterroir “the ultimate Carmenère,” which no doubt solidifies Geise’s reputation for fashioning knockout, full-flavored Carmenère.

This wine’s saturated purple color, seductive perfume of blue and black fruits, and layer upon layer of complex ripe fruit, chocolate, and spice flavors earn the 2005 Microterroir this month’s Collector Series Top Pick. Elegant, opulent, and powerful all at once, the 2005 Microterroir from a tiny plot in Casa Silva’s Los Lingues Vineyard is as good as it gets.  Enjoy!
