Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate mint, pomegranate chutney, and hint of eucalyptus with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an interesting, long finish manifesting notes of raspberry, creme brulee, and cedar and spice with fine, silky tannins and light oak flavor. A spicy, snappy red that invigorates the palate.

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.
