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.
Wine-maker notes quite accurate on this one, very silky mouthfeel most notable. Very nice nose, a bit of toast and coffee notes. This is one of a few Chilean wines I've had recently that have been excellent choices for the price. Appears as if they can't charge the premium the italians and french can for good wine, a nice boon for customers.
