On this país kick lately and have always admired well done carmenere. Great little bottle here that brings a lot of those two varietals together with great harmony. Some bright red, pomegranate and cherry notes, but has an earthy and grassy undertone that makes it wild and gorgeous.

Pretty little wine and the Pais does its trick to make this distinctive.

Cherry, strawberry, violet, with a touch of peppery beef on the nose. Juicy red fruits on the palate with med+ acidity and med tannin with some astringency.

A well made, tasty, balanced wine at an everyday drinking price.

Very tasty and exciting blend. Herbal notes of Carmenere, sleekness of Carignan, dark savory notes of fig and raisin seed from 100yr old Pais. Drink now or hold 12-18 months.
