Our Review

Gritty, woody aromas of horsehide and animal hide lead to a full, chunky palate with oaky flavors of roasted berry fruits, spice and tobacco. This is a wine that's showing heft but isn't showing much acidic cut. Baked plum flavors are common for a Carmenère, while this wine finishes with more herbal, minty notes than fruity ones.
