Nicely aromatic with deep black currant fruit and attractive roast red pepper and herbal elements framed by well-judged toasty oak and carob nuances. Big and powerful in the mouth with a blocky, inelegant feel on entry, as all the structure is completely wrapped in this rich yet silky fruit. It’s a slightly surprising wine and it takes some time to fully warm up to since the aromatics promised more nuance than the palate currently delivers, but this has excellent potential many will enjoy this today for all its sumptuous ripeness. But on the finish, the fruit lightens up somewhat, revealing more red fruits and allowing hints of the aromatic complexity of the nose to return. The acidity on the finish is very refreshing and the tannins superbly fine, allowing a nice tobacco leaf, nutmeg, spice element to roll out on the finale. 91pts

Dark and light. Meaning, the flavors are very dark with chocolate, raspberry and blackberries. While the body is light and pinot-esque. This is not a typical carmenere, but it's still great in its own way.
