Quintay Carmenere Clava Reserve 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Youthful and quite fruity on the nose with hints of plummy fruit intertwined with some spicy oak and gently vegetal braised greens notes all bound up with sweet scents of caramel. Rich and a touch sweet on entry with soft tannins and integrated acidity supporting a nice ball of rich if somewhat indistinct dark fruit on the palate. The wood is not too intrusive yet remains a bit aggressive and just out of balance leaving the finish just a touch bitter in spite of the residual sweetness here. 83pts

Our wines focus on viticulture principles in order to reflect our commitment to winemaking as an expression of terrior. Read less
