Emiliana Carménère Colchagua Valley Natura 2008
Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impact. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers. This wine shows a gorgeous deep ruby red, with light notes of cherries that combine elegantly with a spicy touch of black pepper which adds pleasing aromatic complexity. On the palate the tannins are firm and acidity bright, resulting in a fresh and juicy wine with a very good finish. A brilliant red to share over dinner, particularly wonderful with beef bourguignonne, moussaka or vegetable terrine.
Nice Car that handles combined qualities expected from a Cab and Merlot. On the paint job, dark shadows of eye candy red coated with a fade to magenta tone. Runs the familiar dark berries road w/ a lingering finish. Paired w/ rubbed-n-grilled pork loin on the smoky sweet-spicy side and young Fontina quesadillas. A great bargain at 6 USD, bought at a mexican retail vino shop.
This websites "what to expect" is 100% on point... this wine has the earthiness of the best south america has to offer plus the body of a great merlot from napa valley and a complexity only an established winery could offer... i don't even care that its "GREEN" ... i will have this wine again it is UNIQUE its its character and far complex for its price
