Casa Silva, the Carmenere experts, elevate the conversation about less-expensive Carmenere.
Bright and intense ruby red. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of spices. On the palate, it is round and powerful with sweet soft tannins and balanced acidity. Long finish.
Great pairing with a steak and chimichurri sauce, Mexican fajitas, grilled chicken, roasted portobello mushrooms, or a spicy ratatouille.
Blended from estate vineyards spread across Colchagua, this cuvée offers a clear picture of the region’s carmenère. It’s an enchanting red, with subtle herbal notes woven through round, rich red fruit. While the sweetness of the fruit makes it easy to drink now, it has the potential to become more complex over the next couple of years. Then open it for roast pork.Wine & Spirits Magazine February 2016
Deep ruby. Smoke- and spice-tinged dark fruits and tobacco on the nose. Juicy cherry and black currant flavors are lifted and sharpened by a spine of tangy acidity. Gains flesh with air and finishes sweet and pliant, carrying an echo of bitter cherry and smooth, even tannins.Vinous February 2017
