De Martino 347 Vineyards Carmenere 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The De Martino “347 Vineyards” wines are composed of carefully selected parcels of fruit from different valleys. The result is a multi-dimensional wine with a unique character. It is a concept that reflects Chile’s diversity and De Martino’s pioneering spirit. This wine is produced entirely from Carmenère grapes selected by award winning enologist Marcelo Retemal. The majority of the fruit comes from the Maipo Valley and gives the wine its depth and complex aromas of tobacco and spice. 22% of the fruit comes from a small parcel in the Cachapoal Valley. This gives the wine its ripe fruit flavors and smooth mouth fee. The balance of the blend consists of grapes that come from the Maule Valley and add the distinctive notes of pepper and spice. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and 40% of the wine was aged for eight months in French and American oak barrels.

San Martiño Winery & Vineyards opened its doors in the spring of 2004. We are a small family-owned winery specializing in handcrafted wines using modern techniques but with a traditional “soul” borne in the fertile lands of northwestern Spain. The village of San Martiño, (see picture below), located in the mountains of the Galician region, has been making traditional wines for hundreds of years. It was at the village of San Martiño that our love and knowledge of wine and wine making techniques started. Through years of watching and helping our family in the vineyard we came to appreciate the special relationship between people, their land and the food they grow. Our Texas winery was created by borrowing from the traditions of the San Martiño village and its people, the tenacity and resolution of our family and learned modern wine-making techniques. Our heritage is rich and although we are not Texas largest winery, we aim to be the best!. Here you can watch us grow and participate with us as we travel together in this adventure because we know that without you we are not. So come by and visit with us while relaxing with a glass or bottle of one of our wines. Bring a picnic and enjoy a break from the rat race. Read less

Tasting Notes:

347 Vineyards Carmenère has a deep red color with violet hues. On the nose there are hints of red fruit, tobacco, and cassis that are accompanied by subtle hints of vanilla. The wine is full-bodied, fresh, and concentrated with a perfect balance of between fruit, vanilla, and chocolate.
