Inky ruby. Explosively perfumed aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, with suave floral and Indian spice overtones. Juicy and focused, offering intense boysenberry and candied violet flavors that become sweeter with air. Closes on a smoky note, with excellent clarity and lift and supple tannins that move in slowly. Drinking window: 2019-2025. Score - 91. (Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, June 2015)
This dry ruby coloured wine features intense animal, woody, empyreumatic, spicy, floral, fruity and vegetal scents and offers a full-bodied texture as well as fleshy tannins.
Dark and deep red with violet nuances. Very elegant, complex, great character of pure Carmenere, plumy, red ripe fruit, spicy and black cherries. Great structure, mouth filling, mineral, sweet tannins, graphite, powerful as delicate, with lots of fruit giving a long finish.
Chilean wine journalist Patricio Tapia will taste more Carmenere than anyone so is perfectly suited to be the top expert on this grape. He rates the 2011 vintage 96 points and Chile’s Best Carmenere. Loaded with structured Cachapoal fruit as harnessed by legendary winemaker Ignacio Recabarren, this is another showstopper. All packaged in wood x 6 which makes a perfect cellaring item.
