Reviews and Ratings

Philippe Perreault - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep purple color with a nice nose of blackberry, cherry, coffee, violet and spice.

On the palate the wine is smooth, balanced, elegant and long.

Try it with stewed pork chops.

Serve it at 15-17 degrees.
Pour it in carafe 30 minutes before the service.

Ready to drink but can be aged 4-5 years.
The 2010 Carmenere impresses the nose right away, with aromas of eucalyptus, cherry and nice white pepper with
spicy and earthly notes. On the palate smooth, ripe tannins showcase flavours of cherry chocolate and black currant.
The vintage has amazing complexity with nice acidity and a pleasing long finish. This would pair well with braised
short ribs, a charceuterie platter and past.
