Winemaker's Notes:

Deep violet to ruby-red in color, this wine is expressive and long, recalling red and black cherries, prunes and a touch of tobacco and pencil shavings. On the palate, it is well-structured and powerful, with well-rounded tannins that lead to a voluminous and seductive finish.

Blend: 75% Carmenère, 20% Syrah and 5% Carignan
