The deep concentration of this wine, in addition to its bright dark purple colour, already denote the presence of Carmenère in the glass. Immensely complex and expressive on the nose, it offers notes of tobacco, flowers, plums and cedar with soft touches of smoke and earth. On the palate it shows an amazingly vibrant acidity and a shade of roasted bell pepper, one of the variety’s characteristics. Its juicy red fruit mingles with its fine-grained tannins delivering an amazing balance and integration. Still very youthful, its fresh acidity and great structure allow predicting a long life in the bottle. Drink as of now through to 2030.
