    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark and deep red with violet nuances. On the nose, this wine is very elegant and complex with great character of pure Carmenere - plumy, red ripe fruit, spicy and black cherries. On the palate, it has great structure. It is mouth filling with mineral, sweet tannins, graphite, powerful as it is delicate, with lots of fruit giving a long finish.

    Blend: 85% Carmenere and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 vintage displays a very similar aromatic and flavor profile as the 2007, as well as a voluptuous body. It will evolve for several years and offers a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2023. Both vintages are approachable now which is a good thing because readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off these two beauties.

    Dark cassis, kirsch and plum sauce fruit is framed by fine tannins, which lend a creamy edge to the dark fruit notes and maduro tobacco, wildflower and spicy cedar hints.

    Wine Spectator

    Dense in color, with earthy, crusty aromas of baked berry, moss, tobacco, cola and cassis. Feels lush, meaty and deep, with tobacco, balsamic flavors, baked blackberry and chocolate. Mellow, lightly herbal and smooth on the finish; hits all the high marks.

    Glass-staining ruby. Highly complex bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, incense, vanilla and smoky herbs, with slow-building florality. Sappy and broad, with deep black and blue fruit flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes bright and long, with excellent clarity and lingering spiciness. This wine will drink well young
