Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Very flavourful Carmenère with aromas of coconut oil, cassis, plum, underbrush, cloves and ripe tobacco. Dry, plush and fruity with velvety tannins. Very good aroma replays, with nice acidity wrapped around the fruit to make it beautifully lively. A refined, fruity/savoury wine with a very long finish. My note: Herbal with a pleasant bitter note underlies rich fleshy black plums. Velvet texture, full-bodied weight.

Carmenère food pairings: hearty ratatouille, rabbit stew, grilled eggplant, bison steaks.
