Natalie's Score: 88/100

A savoury satin-smooth Carmenere from a terrific producer. This wine is a steal at this price, and makes for a great party wine: not too heavy, not too light. Aromas of black plum and mocha. Perfect for a juicy steak

Carmenere food pairings: roast beef.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Toasty green pepper on the nose. The palate offers some black fruit and spice but overall the wine lacks complexity and depth.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour. Initially some green pepper on the nose with some toast and oak. Good acidity with some grainy tannins. The palate repeats with some green pepper, cherry, warming alcohol. Not an overly long length.
Tasted: April 12, 2015
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Smokey, peppery, green peppery with faint red/black berry fruit. Medium-light grippy tannins, balanced acidity and medium-long herbed berry finish. A savoury medium bodied carmenere, yet interesting.
Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Full deep red in colour, green pepper on the nose, this wine continues with green pepper on the tongue. Very thin on the finish, this would be a good wine to pair with roasted root veggies - think sweet potato - and chicken.
