Shows why Carmenère works so well in Chilean vineyards. Features bold sunkissed aromas of candied cherry and blueberry, with hints of black cherry, leather and tar. All these elements together make for an intriguing and thoroughly enjoyable wine. Dry, smooth with lots of dark fruit tones returning on the palate. There’s some cellar potential (2-3 years) here too. Enjoy tonight with a meat-based pasta dish, or ribs in a zesty sauce. (VINTAGES panel, April 2012)
