Nice dinner wine - dark fruit. Good example of Chilean Carmenere.

Dark wine. This had quite a floral nose (if perhaps somewhat synthetic. Dryer sheets came to mind) with dark fruit, and a nice earthiness.

Full bodied. A plush, fat wine. No wonder these grapes were sometimes mistaken for merlot. Lots of fruit flavour, some herbs, warm spice, and touch of smokiness. Decent tannic backbone. A balanced, easy to drink wine without being overly sweet.

No reason to cellar this, it's ready to drink.

I'd buy this again.

Outstanding with slow cooked BBQ pork.
