Country: Chile, Colchagua Valley
Tasting Note: Deep purplish-red in color, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère delivers a tremendous range of fruity aromas of ripe red and black berries with pronounced notes of cherries in syrup and black cherries. The French oak lends clear notes of vanilla and coffee that meld with the fruit to recall pastries and jam. Nicely balanced on the palate with silky tannins. Very rich structure, well set on the palate with a long and pleasing finish.
Varietal: Blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carmenère
Pairing: Highly recommended with stir-fried beef, pork chops, spaghetti Bolognese, pizza, lamb chops, and mushroom risotto.
