Deep ruby with a violet rim. On the nose, intense, with notes of ripe black fruits with hints of wild forest fruits. On the palate, good balance between fruit and oak, good structure, powerful, sweet and round tannins, and notes of boysenberries and hints of tobacco. Excellent finish.
Winemaker Mario Geisse has taken a distinctive approach to carmenère. Selecting sectors of the Los Lingues Vineyard in the foothills of the Andes, he obtains fresh and delicate fruit with clear tones of herbs and juicy cherries and a texture that is both creamy and crisp. The wine emphasizes delicacy and freshness over the superripeness so often found in wines at this price.
Opaque ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, potpourri, anise and pipe tobacco expand with air, picking up a lively mineral note. Fleshy and sweet, with palate-staining dark berry compote flavors and a suave floral pastille quality. Becomes spicier on the finish, which is impressively pure and persistent. This is already delicious.
Compact and juicy, with a solid core of currant, raspberry, spice cake and licorice notes that stay grippy and focused through the full-bodied finish. Drink now through 2010. 50 cases imported.
