Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) One of the benchmarks for what can be achieved with Carmenere. Notions of sandalwood, exotic spices, incense, a hint of chocolate, blueberry, and black currant set the stage for a dense, rich, voluptuous, structured wine that is all about pleasure.

Winemaker's Notes

The wine is dark and brooding, offering dense and concentrated blackberry, currant, loam, coconut, dark chocolate, bell pepper, tar, espresso, and violets. Full-bodied round and polished with plenty of power and depth. The finish is supple, mouth-coating and persistent dosing out a ton of spicy black fruits.

    BlackBerry, spice, and vanilla undertones on the nose. On the palate, black fruit, some dried fruit, with a definite spice. There's also a touch of green pepper. this is a really nice and balanced one. It's great with food.
