Winemaker's Notes:

Carmenère has emerged from hibernation to take its deserved place among the red royalty of wine. Calina Carmenère boasts robust flavors with soft tannins—a delightful alternative to other red wines.

Color: Deep, opaque red.

Aromas: Complex nose with mature blackberry, coffee and pepper.

Flavors: Bright berry and cherry, coffee, warm-hearted spice.

Body: Lush and rich texture, strong but smooth mouthfeel and soft tannins for a long finish.
