Fantastic purple colour, excellent nose with strong notes of pepper, black fruit and ripe plums. Extremly well balanced medium-bodied wine, ready to drink or save for up to 15 years...
Opaque deep ruby in colour, this Carmenère displays aromas of ripe blackberry, black cherry, smoky cedar, and a hint of mustard. It's dry, medium full-bodied with bold flavours of black fruit, smoky cedar, and red pepper jelly balanced by medium acidity and mouth-coating tannins, all leading to a warm medium-long finish. A very attractive companion for rare beef or rich lamb dishes. (LCBO)
