The result of groundbreaking research aimed at defining Carmenere’s potential in Chile.
Intense ruby red with violet hues. On the nose, delicate aromas of red and black fruits with hints of coffee. On the palate, harmonious, with very good structure, soft tannins and notes of ripe red fruits, spices and a soft touch of black pepper. Long, lingering finish.
Makes an interesting pairing with curries, italian sausage, or Texas-style ribs.
A rather serious, spicy wine that has a mellow and savory personality and quite a complex, long, herbal finish.James Suckling March 2018
The 2011 Carmenere Microterroir de Los Lingues is the result of almost 70 different micro-vinifications of the best Carmenere grapes from their Los Lingues vineyards in 500-liter rotating barrels. After one year only the best barrels are selected and blended together. There is a special balsamic, bright aroma of dark cherries and aromatic herbs, thyme and lavender and a peppery touch of paprika. Quite showy and impressive, it reminds me of Alto Cachapoal more than Colchagua. The palate is savory with good balance and depth, fresh, with meaty tannins and a juicy finish. It manages to keep its elegance while being powerful. It’s drinkable now but should also age further. I tasted a 2006 for comparison, and the wine is still aging slowly.The Wine Advocate April 2017
