Wine Review: This deep ruby Chilean Carmenere has a very intense bouquet of dark cherry, herbs, forest floor and red bell pepper. It is medium bodied, dry and displays rich fruit flavors. If found seep dark fruits along with white pepper, earthy chocolate and some toasty oak on the palate. The grippy tannins linger in the finish with notes of herbs and spice. A hearty beef stew would pair well with this Carmenere. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Bright and intense ruby red. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of spices. On the palate, it is round and powerful with sweet soft tannins and balanced acidity. Long finish. Great pairing with a steak and chimichurri sauce, Mexican fajitas, grilled chicken, roasted portobello mushrooms, or a spicy ratatouille.
