Ceylon tea, cucumber stalk, freshly roasted cacao nibs - a wild ride on this nose so far !

Roasted green pepper, chocolate covered chile, fresh thyme, a unique acidity brings up the rear of this wine, with a small amount of barrel showing. Straight up delicious Carmenere.

Wafting cacao rubbed green pepper.
This nose easily becomes the tasting profile of the wine, a touch of pepper, and a delicate tomatillo acidity that rounds it all out.
Classic garden plant throughout.
Yum.

Sweet smoked cacao on the nose, medium bodied, that has flavors of bark, roasted corn silk, playing with ganache wrapped tannins. Completely enjoyable carmenere with just a touch of heat.

Notes of bing cherry, green bell pepper, plum, dill and hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with round tannins, good acidity and a very long finish. Also getting notes of red raspberry and baking spices.

This wine is a smooth cab that is easy to drink and is another bottle is in my “daily drinker” rotation. It was a great recommendation while shopping from another cab drinker.

Now 2/2 on great wines from Colchagua, want to try more from there. Nose of green pepper tempered with blueberry, blackberry, herbs, a barnyard warmth. Good balance.

Wow-terrific, refined with good body and classic cab depth and easy tannins. Great wine for the money.
