Dark, luscious, round wine. Smoke and spice, great chalky texture

Compost on the nose, although we just opened this 6 year old bottle. So, ok. Truth time. We've had carmenere wines before and thought they were oddly flavored, off balanced, and overall not so great. Whew! Got that off my chest. This wine shows some real promise. Fully flavored with lovely red fruits, smooth tannins and silky finish. We enjoyed this and am sure it will open up.

Absolutely superb South American vintage. Paired well with beef tenderloin and nacho cheese Doritos alike
