A beautifully seductive Chilean Carmenere at an incredibly great price. Aromas of fleshy ripe black plums and a hint of smoke and spice. Velvet texture on the tongue. Perfect party wine. The grapes for this wine come from the winery's La Rinconada estate vineyard. Try this with meat and a mild to medium curry.
