Xplorador Carmenere 2010

A product of the giant Chilean combine Concha y Toro which sells vast quantities of plonk in this country, this inexpensive red is a very pleasant surprise. It tastes of blackberry, with soft tannins and a somewhat smoky finish. Indisputably a genuine bargain at $5.99. I guess the one thing you can say for sure about the PLCB is that it's not predictable.
