Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The once-forgotten Bordeaux grape, Carmenère, is thriving in Chile’s winemaking valleys and is proving to be as important to Chile as Malbec is to neighboring Argentina. This is a fresh and fruity mouth-filling red with aromas and flavors of juicy ripe cherries, chocolate, gentle herbal notes and toasty oak. My note: Redolent of smoked herbs, jammy cassis, and gamey notes. Full-bodied and lip-smacking delicious. Tremendous value.

Inky, deeply saturated blackish-ruby hue. Reserved, youthful, concentrated mineral, lead pencil, and red fruit aromas show good varietal character. A rich entry leads a fleshy, fruit-driven, full-bodied palate. Lengthy, oak-tinged finish with velvety tannins. Has impressive depth of flavor and excellent balance. Will work well with hearty winter dishes. A great value. Exceptional. Score: 90 3Wtc
