Natalie's Score: 89/100

Wow, what a knockout Chilean red wine for this price point! Rich and concentrated with deep layers of black cherry liqueur flavour. Luscious, mouth-filling, smooth and full-bodied. Pair with grilled meats or roast beef.

Carmenere food pairings: hearty c hili, pork stew or barbeque ribs, roasted eggplant parmesan or v egetarian lasagna, or rich cheeses like Camembert or Brie.

Reviews and Ratings

Intense violet in color with ripe aromas of black berries and warm spice. Full-bodied and fruit-forward with plum, cherry and a hint of smoke. Smooth tannins and good structure create perfect balance and a powerful finish with notes of vanilla.
