Piquant blackcurrant and fresh green herbal scents with cinnamon and clove on the nose move to agreeably rounded ripe dark fruit flavours supported by light tannic grip, a splash of vanilla and milk chocolate, finishing quite dry.
Clear medium-deep plum red. Medium-intensity aromas of cassis, plums, vanilla and spice. Fruit-forward and grapey in the mouth, with blackcurrant and raspberry flavours, and a bit of dark chocolate on the finish. Tannins are a bit rough; needs another year or 2.
Full ruby, purplish rim. Fresh nose of red fruits, hints of flowers, green pepper and beet. The oak reveals itself through pastry notes. Round and supple; the tannins are soft, well wrapped in fruity extract. Finish is intensely fruity. Ready to drink.
Shows fleshy red berry scents with dry herbal and spicy overtones. Cherry and raspberry flavours come with a splash of chocolate in a smooth, well-balanced package.
Dense purple in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant and tobacco nose; full-bodied with spicy-peppery flavours of sweet blackberry and tobacco leaf; good length with ripe tannins.
Chile’s signature grape Carménère makes an interesting change from Cabernet Sauvignon — a grape with which it shares some flavour characteristics. Dense purple in colour like Cabernet, this Carménère shows a cedary, blackcurrant nose with graphite and herbal notes; it’s full-bodied and dry with a rich blackcurrant flavour.
