Winemaker's Notes:

Dark and deep red with violet nuances. On the nose, this wine is very elegant and complex with great character of pure Carmenere - plumy, red ripe fruit, spicy and black cherries. On the palate, it has great structure. It is mouth filling with mineral, sweet tannins, graphite, powerful as it is delicate, with lots of fruit giving a long finish.

Blend: 85% Carmenere and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
