Winemaker's Notes:

This is a wine with a very intense, deep red-blue color. It has strong fig and ripe fruit aromas mixed with coffee, toasty and spicy notes. On the palate, it is well-structured and full-bodied, with an interesting combination of oak. A very smooth, harmonious, silky and pleasant wine.

"The 2007 Carmenere Gran Reserva is a saturated opaque purple. Coffee bean, mocha, and blueberry aromas lead to a structured wine with tons of succulent fruit, moderate tannin, and several years of aging potential. If it continues to blossom, it will merit an outstanding rating." 89+ Points
