Winery: In Situ
Natalie's Score: 88/100
Outstanding wine for the money! Produced by San Esteban, this robust Chilean red wine comes from the winery's Winemakers Selection. It offers aromas of cassis and cedar with full-bodied richness. This wine is named after the river that divides it in half. The region of Aconcagua in Chile is extremely warm and dry, ideal for ripening rich, full-bodied red wines. It's supple and layered on the palate, like liquid velvet. I'd drink this wine with hearty meat dishes.
Carmenere food pairings: pork tenderloin.

Fully ripe fruit on the nose. Fruity and flavourful with a long tannic finish. Could benefit from some cellar time. Tasted Jan 31/16

Dark ruby in color with loads of fruit on the nose - cassis, blueberry, black plum, baking spice and floral notes. Medium-bodied with medium tannins, the palate is presented with blueberry, plum and baking spice with a black pepper finish. Pair with lamb and beef dishes. Tasted January 31, 2016.

Pleasantly surprised by the fruity nose…
Presentation: I really like the label. I like the colours, the font, and the red dots that make it look like a tuxedo.
Appearance: Medium ruby
Nose: Fruity (blackberries, passion fruit, blueberries), green peppers, white pepper, and a touch of flowers in the back
Taste: Sour cherries, leather, green peppers.
Finish: leather, pepper.
Overall impression: An easy, fruit forward wine with some complexity in the back. Would be good with a variety of cheeses, red meats and pastas. Would definitely try this wine again.
Value: 4 out of 5

Finishes with licorice and spice. pair with chili con carne. The 2012 vintage of this wine won a Gold Medal at the 2014 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. - Community Wine Reviews|
