Viña Tacama “Quantum”  Ica (Peru) 2008
Tasting Notes: 100% Petit Verdot, 13.5% vol. Dark purplish-ruby red in the glass. Spicy, herbal and alcoholic nose with notes of dark chocolate and berries. It’s not fully integrated. Very jammy, thick and syrupy in the mouth. The texture is leaning toward cough syrup. The tannins are sweet and smooth but the acidity is lacking. This wine is unbalanced and overbearing.
Rating: 10/20 (78/100)
Price: 49.00 Soles @ Metro Supermarket in Miraflores, Lima, Peru
