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.
Combining different grapes from Colchagua, Casa Silva makes this Carménère with pre- and post-fermentation maceration followed by 50% aging in oak. It is a dark reddish violet in the glass, with an herbal, minty nose over a base of blackberry and cassis. On the palate it is well defined and fleshy, featuring polished tannins and an intensely pleasurable flavor and structure that enhance the overall profile.Vinous March 2020
Los Lingues and Lolol are the two sources of this aromatic, sensitively oaked Carmenère from the Casa Silva team. Refreshingly low in alcohol for the variety, this is floral, textured and supple, with classic capsicum and bramble flavours and a sprig of mint. 2021-25Tim Atkin March 2020
