Winemaker's Notes:

In this blend, 96% Carmenere is balanced with 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

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.
