Intense and fruity this wine has fresh aromas of mulberry and strawberry that mingle with jammy flavours and roasted red pepper notes. Velvety and smooth, it has a full bodied palate and a really tasty finish! Vina Echeverria is a long established Chilean family owned and managed Estate, producing high quality wines.

I have fallen in LOVE with the reds out of this vineyard in the Cohchugua Valley of Chile. Their fresh, distinctive quality and absolute definitive & distinctive freshness, purity, and adherence to the grape varietal flavor is beyond phenomenal. What I love even more is that for the price points on these wines, you are getting better taste & quality for your dollar; definitely NOT overpaying for wine- you are UNDERPAYING for the quality of the syrah, carmenere, and cabernet. I have the best description of their med-heavy reds - DECADENT VELVET WITH ABSOLUTE PERFECTED PURITY & DINSTINCTIVE FRESHNESS. TRY THEIR WINES! THEY ARE WELL WORTH THE PRICE UNDER $20 for young vintages- and the quality increases yearly uncorked! THESE ARE BEYOND BEST BUYS! THESE ARE BEST EVERS! Read less

Beautiful bold carmenere with a startling beginning and boutiful middle- it's carmenere picked, fermented and presented at it's prime. This is NOT a recork & save for next day wine at all... it is so distinctly decadent that it won't last anyway... WELL DONE & WORTH THE PRICE POINT!
