Tasting Notes
The wine produced from these Carmenère grapes is gaining elegance with every passing vintage. It is the most intriguing fruit to work with at our winery due to its unique flavor profile and its dynamic maturity. The nose presents a wonderful white pepper that transforms to peppercorn, or sometimes chili pepper, on the palate that beautifully contrasts with its very soft tannins. Almond aromatics evolve to an elegant flavor of candy cherry, pomegranate and plum swirled in a hint of Jamocha and wood spice.
