Somewhat dry and tart. Still has a fruity flavor. Good for sipping alone or with foods.

Strong spice smell on the nose with maybe a hint of green pepper, well balanced and a nice finish. Worth buying for the price.

If there is such a thing as a spice bomb, this is it! The spiciness overwhelms the plum and dark berry flavors. Some barrel character is there as well. But if you don't like a very spicy wine, pass on this Carmenere 🍷

Do not drink unless aerated. A nice, medium-bodied wine which pairs well with a rosado or maduro cigar.

Tabacco and earth, berries and cinnamon spice. Ripe black berry flavors continue on the palate. Supple tannins with the right structure. Medium to full
