chilensisAn intense nose with that characteristic wild herb aroma note shares the stage with smoke and dusty earth surrounding blackberry fruit. A classic Carmenere.

More black fruit and savory herbs on the medium-to-full bodied palate.  A wine with some intensity and complexity it is quite juicy up front and but shows a rustic aspect developing an astringent finish with sandy tannins and some wood notes.

I wouldn’t recommend it for the smooth and sweet crowd but if you like personality and some toughness in your wine this will satisfy.
