Tasting Notes:

Carmenère shows a spicy, plummy nose, and ripe, berry fruit on the palate.

Huge vegetative nose, with notes of chocolate and blackberries. Softened tannins and fruit acidity on the body, with a dry cocoa finish. Read more

This smells a bit sour with a rather pronounced green pepper and herbaceous top note on the nose. There’s a nice lurking base of fruit here, but it’s hard to get through the vegetal aromas. In the mouth this is bright and juicy with a succulent feel and rather elegant notes of cherry and blueberry fruit buffered by sweet oak spice. There’s a very appealing element here and perhaps this just needs some more time in the bottle, but the nose and a rather tough, drying finish leave me wanting more. 88pts
