Natalie's Score: 90/100
A rich, full-bodied Chilean red wine made from the country's signature red wine grape Carmenere. Aromas of dark fruit and smoke. Made from grapes grown in the Rapel Valley that are hand-harvested in May. The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. Pair with roast beef. Tremendous value.
Carmenère food pairings: wine-braised beef, turkey with heavy sauces, wild boar, bison chili.

Nice nose full of spices and blackberries. Great mouth with acidity, fruit and some complexity for a wine in that price range. Highly enjoyable. This would be great with a steak or brazilian bbq.
