Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Cordillera de los Andes 2018, made by Miguel Torres, in Chile, offers aromas of pomegranate, raspberry, white pepper, slate, dark chocolate and sandalwood. Made exclusively from Carmenere, this full-bodied wine exposes soft tannins, limpid acidity and a coating finish. Flavors of cherry, pomegranate, green peppercorn, spice, sweet tobacco and caramel make this a perfect sipper. Enjoy.
