Vintages Wine Panel: This single-vineyard Carmenère may just be the world’s best. Need proof? It was awarded the Grand Trophy at Chile’s 2nd Annual World Carmenère Competition in 2008. Deep ruby/purple color leads to a nose of ripe cassis, dark chocolate, sage, cedar, mocha and wood smoke. Dry with loads of fruit perfectly supported by ripe tannins and fine smoky-oak tones. Medium full-bodied with a very long finish. Keep it 2-4+ years or enjoy it tonight. My note: Dark chocolate rounds out the blackberries and plums with a smoke-infused center. Full-bodied and rich. Great value for the money.

Carmenère food pairings: very rare steak.
