A fine carmenere from chile. I have been to Chile and Errazuriz is one of the better vintners.
The deep purplish-red color hints at the aromas and flavors to come intense notes of violet, sweet spices and red fruit are touched by hints of nutmeg and red pepper. Medium-firm tannins and balanced acidity lead to a refreshing and smooth finish.
Fruit grown in the Max V Vineyard was fermented in stainless steel tanks with pump overs twice per day. Post-fermentation, the wine macerated for 13-25 days and aged for 12 months in oak barrels (20% new).
