(2009 Vintage) Carmenere Barrel Reserve is an intense violet red in color. Spicy notes such as black pepper stand out on the nose, along with fruits such as blueberries and blackberries. The palate is well balanced, with soft, ripe tannins and a pleasing finish. It is the perfect companion to pastas, Chilean food, stews and casseroles.
