This wine opened up with aromas of black cherry, raspberry, cassis, underbrush, dried mint, savoury spices and vanilla notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, intense, muscular texture, spicy black fruit and light herbal flavours, balanced acidity and firm tannins. This Carmenère has a long finish, with rich flavours and mild tannins lingering. This wine needed a little time to open up; decanting would be a very good idea since the tannins are quite aggressive at first but one hour later the wine becomes very smooth. It is better served with red meat, very enjoyable and a superb value.
