Oveja Negra Carignan Single Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2008 Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Carignan has an outstanding deep purple colour with a garnet-red rim. Its tremendous aromatic complexity features red fruit such as cherries and raspberries with subtle floral notes of violet and rose petals along with a light touch of spice. These aromas meld elegantly with notes of chocolate and coffee from its barrel aging. The palate presents tremendous personality that echoes the fruit and oak from the nose with high intensity and firm, ripe tannins. The bright fruit flavors lead to spicy notes with a light touch of oak and end with a pleasingly persistent finish. Our 2008 Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Carignan comes from 40- year-old vines from Plot N°8 in our old dry farmed vineyards in the interior of the Maule Valley. This region is known for its tremendous geographic diversity and Mediterranean climate with well-defined seasons throughout the year. Vintage: 2008 Grapes: 92% Carignan, 8% Carmenere Origin: Maule Valley Alcohol: 14.0% by volume R/S: 2.0 g/L Acidity: 3.6 g/L
