Whats Chiles own red varietal, why Carmenere of course and this is a stonkingly fine examples of this Merlot-esque grape.The grapes come from Chile's winegrowing heartland- the Central Valley, and are expertly managed to enhance the fruit characteristics of each individual grape variety. A Carmenere which is high intensity ruby red and bright in color. On the nose it is expressive and intense, distinguished with notes of blackberry, plum, and black pepper. On the palate these aromas mix with notes of vanilla, coffee and chocolate from careful oak aging. Fresh and persistent finish.
