Carménère

2015

The fascinating bouquet expresses bright berry fruits such as blueberry and raspberry, along with warm notes of coffee bean, sweet tobacco leaf and cedar shavings. The expressive fruit on the aroma is accompanied by savory tones of cured meat and ensures a complex aromatic profile. After a while the depth of the aroma continues through noticeable hints of leather, plum and chocolate. The mouth feel consists of sweet, ripe red berry fruits, framed by bright acidity in the finish for structure. The balance of fruit and acidity, along with firm tannin, makes it an excellent food wine that will definitely cellar for quite some time.

This Carménère will be even more expressive when paired with smoked pork sausage, beef tenderloin with a ground coffee rub and grilled portabella mushrooms with parmesan, salami and raspberry jam!
