Winemaker's Notes:

"Inky black hue with a fuchsia rim. Spicy red fruit aromas emit hints of chili powder and bell pepper. A prototype Carmenère with crisp acids and telltale green pepper laced through the racy red and black fruit flavors. Lingering, spicy finish."
-Wine News

"A juicy and well balanced Carmenere, this offers herbal and green pepper aromas with chocolately flavors that accentuate its soft, rounded texture. For hamburgers." 89 Points
