Ruby color. Spicy, herbal aromas and flavors of candied citrus and lavender, ripe blueberries, and menthol-mint with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish conveying elements of craisin and goji berry, pickled beet relish, cedar, and cocoa-dusted nuts with fine, crunchy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A stylish, palate stimulating red blend that will shine at the table.

Other Chilean Red

Chile is home to many notable red wines beside Carmenère. Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are planted in large numbers in many of the country's regions. Maipo Valley is the leading region for these wines, especially in terms of quality, which is often world-class. These grapes are also grown in Chile's warm Central Valley, which produces inexpensive wines of very good character.

Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Pinot Noir are also excellent Chilean reds. Syrah has adapted well to both cool (San Antonio and Casablanca Valleys) and warm regions (Colchagua Valley) in the country, while Pinot Noirs from Leyda and San Antonio Valleys near the Pacific Ocean display great complexity.
