A core of blackberry and black currant with an edge of minerals and vegetables. Medium bodied with moderate finish with just a hint of white pepper. A very enjoyable, tasty wine.

Undurchdringliches Rubinrot, granatfarbene Reflexe. Blaubeeren, Cassis und schwarze Kirschen in der fein parfümierten Nase, blumige Noten auch. Eleganter Auftakt, abgelöst von einer charmanten Fruchtsüsse, wiederum schwarzbeerig geprägt, auch köstliche Crémant-Schokolade und ein Hauch Wildkräuter; sehr sanfte Tannine; balsamische Noten im leicht frischen Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes:

Bold aromas make an instant impact on the nose with layers of black cherry, vanilla, mint and spices. Concentrated ripe fruit flavors fill the palate with elegant, polished tannins and a nice touch of toasted oak on the silky, long finish.

<p>Santa Alicia, located in the famous Maipo Valley. This 100% Carmen&egrave;re is made from vineyards primarily in Melipilla area. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks for 7 - 10 days and is aged for eight months in 100% American oak before bottling and release.&nbsp;</p>
