Natalie's Score: 90/100

Savoury with herbal and black plum aromas. Smooth, supple and full-bodied. Like Merlot, but more interesting and Carmenere is known as Chile's flagship red wine grape. Great balancing acidity for hearty meat dishes served with a tangy sauce.

Carmenère food pairings: grilled roast beef with roasted potatoes.

Reviews and Ratings

Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Smokey, leather aromas and medium bodied and very smooth on the palette with tastes of blackberry and cherry. Finish lingers on the palette with strong tannins. Pair with grilled meats.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
