    Winemaker's Notes:

    To create a Red Blend that reveals layer after layer of rich flavors and luscious textures, we combined five distinct varietals from our three estate vineyards in Chile. Merlot from our cool climate Casablanca estate adds bright notes of cherry and raspberry; Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our Apalta estate adds dark notes of fig, blackberry and black current, as well as richness and structure; Carmenere and Cabernet Franc from our Marchigue vineyard in Colchagua Valley completes this blend with roundness, earthiness and a hint of spice. To create a seamless blend of superior character, we co-fermented several varieties together, such as Carmenere with Cabernet Franc, and Merlot with Syrah. The result is a beautiful blend with richness and depth.

    An easy-drinking red, the 2012 Veramonte Red Blend follows the recent treand of very slightly sweet red (this one staddles the area between dry and sweet) have become quite popular in the marketplace. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere and a little bit of Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Smooth in the finish, of course.

    Nose starts off in classic Chilean fashion: dark fruit, spice box, and earthy forest wood. It quickly and completely devolves into melted-down dark jolly rancher juice on the palate, however. I was quite impressed with Veramonte's El Caballero cab sauv and had moderate hopes for this wine (since both come in at similar price points), but this really just seems as if it was made to cater to pure sugar-fiends. If I could, I might go 1.5 stars based solely on the solid nose, but this effort deserves more of a round-down than a round-up. 72.

    A strange blend. It starts sweet, and then is dry. Later, a lingering sweet taste re-appears. It is a hodge-podge of a blend. Ultimately, too sweet for me.
