Carménère 2015

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

The unique wine is inky and dark and shows vivid aromas of tobacco, coffee bean and cracked pepper. With a little aeration, you will notice dark plum, subtle hints of black currant, warm wood and leather.
The supple mouth feel will reveal flavors of dark berry fruits, accents of pepper and beautiful soft cedar tones. It is layered, possesses soft tannins and finishes with fair acidity.This Carmenere can for sure stand alone, but will be outstanding with barbequed or smoked meats such us grilled pork chops, smoked ribs or coffee-marinated beef tenderloin. Enjoy!
