Plum, black cherry, and baking spices. M+ acid and tannin. M body. Great structure and balanced. Good price point.

Bold and smooth. Very Merlot like with notes of cocoa, black fruit, black cherry, tobacco and leather. A favourite for the night and paired perfectly with wood fire roasted ribs at Park Distillery in Banff.

2015 in July 2018. Very enjoyable, drank by itself but would pair nicely with beef.

MZ drank the 2015 vintage March 29, 2018 at Bar Liguria. Full bodied and rich flavor without being too tannic. Very drinkable with depth.

First wine since having #19 emergency extracted this week.
Miss that tooth immensely.

This wine is such an incredible Carmenere.
Dusted cocoa fills the nose, following into rich layers of South American terroir. Slight salinity, ripe, delicious fruit, chocolate covered wild berries. The acidity is well integrated into the cigar box.

2015 vintage- April 2018
Subtle, mild spicy taste with a strong fruit finish.

Oh what a nice nose of roasted cacao nibs.

Fresh garden stalk, cacao, berry fruits, medium bodied with dusty tannins.

The bottle lies upon the flag of Patagonia.
