    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep dark purple red, very intense color. Expressive nose, with spices, red and black fruit, some smoky tones, chocolate and herbal notes at the end. Smooth and well balanced tannins, with a good structure and a long finish. Service and Food Pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18°C (60 to 65°F). Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright purple. Blackcurrant, graphite, mocha and sexy oak on the nose. Lush and sweet, with attractive spiciness to the flavors of red and dark berries and cocoa powder. Pliant, smooth and impressively focused carmenere, finishing with sweet tannins and lovely persistence.
