Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe and fruity with notes of spice and a soft finish, this primitivo is a winner. Strong, vigorous, and full of personality it is a real king (of the coop)!

Winemaker's Notes:

A beautiful deep red hue that seems almost opaque. The nose shows caramel and spices that mingle with red berry fruit. The palate is full and deep, with fine tannins and good length.

(search item no. 106175)

PRICE ON 9/16/2014: $10.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Intensely dark and violet in color with bold, sweet, floral aromas of blackberry and earthy plum which combine with peppery spiciness. In the mouth, it is ripe, structured, and surprisingly complex, with a terrific softness on the palate.
My Notes:

About Vina Perallilo:

Founded in 1998, Vina Peralillo is located in the Colchagua Valley at 656 feet altitude, 155 miles from Santiago. Because they are on the coastal side of the valley, their estate benefits from a significant maritime influence, allowing daily temperature fluctuations of up to 70 degrees.

Their 75 acres of Carmenére vineyards are some of the most beautifully managed we have yet to lay eyes upon.
