Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a single vineyard Carmenere, with aromas of candied cherry, blackberry, smoke, graphite and leather. Medium bodied, dry on the palate with some dusty, drying tannins, ripe, rounded berry notes with a hint of a jammy note, and a smoky finish. Enjoy with burgers or ribs.
