Blue and black berries, vanilla oak with tell-tale herbaceous note. Vibrant texture, sweet velvet tannins, medium-bodied, ripe acidity. Long finish.
93 Points - James Suckling A pretty nose, yet one with concentration. It shows dark plums, cranberry sauce, peppercorns and dark stones. Medium body, ripe and structured tannins and a chewy finish.
91 Points - Wine Spectator A textbook Carmenère, with a fine-edged savoriness to the dark plum, blackberry and dark currant flavors. Green herb and chocolate notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2023.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Minty, herbal berry aromas are boosted by a lot of oak, resulting in chocolaty scents of mocha and coffee. High acidity, be it natural or added, creates a saucy, tomatoey mouthfeel, while this tastes of herbal blackberry and dark plum. More oak is found on a dry, tannic finish.
