Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This is Chilean Carmenère in all its glory. Ripe cherry, plum, black pepper, licorice and menthol notes are wrapped in smooth tannins, culminating in a long finish. A medium- to full-bodied beauty. My note: Delivers smoky dark notes of mocha, coffee, black fruit and earth on the nose. It’s quite robust and rustic but delicious, so decant for two hours before drinking.

Carmenère food pairings: blackened herb-roasted chicken, venison, boar, prime rib with a port-reduction sauce, hard cheeses.
