Limarí Valley, Chile

Review Summary:

Classic varietal aromas of intense violets, blueberry and red berries strike the nose. Fresh acidity and supple tannins balance well with the rich red- and black-berried fruit. Subtle vanilla, spicy nutmeg and lingering mineral unfurl on the finish. Serve with hearty red meat dishes.
