Deep dark purple red, very intense color. On the nose, expressive nose, with fresh black fruit aromas, spices, red pepper and bitter chocolate. Has smooth and well balanced tannins, with a good structure and a long finish. Needs aging - recommended for cellaring for several years or decant and serve at 60 to 65°F. An ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.
Blend: 85% Carmenère, 15% Merlot.
"Rich and dark smelling, with alluring pastry, earth, herb and soothing berry aromas. Deep, meaty and very ripe across the mouth, with cola, chocolate, roasted berry and fresh prune flavors. Toasty and lush as it fades away. Fun and modern; drink now through 2013."
