Casas Del Toqui Carmenere Single Estate Central Valley

Inky purple. Spicy aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and violet, plus complicating notes of cured tobacco and licorice. Offers gently sweet black and blue fruit flavors complemented by peppery spices and a hint of bitter chocolate. Finishes slightly loose-knit but with good lingering sweetness.

The grapes were handpicked from our estate vineyards, located over the best alluvial terraces in Alto Maipo Region by the Andes mountains. Extremely concentrated grapes are the result of old vineyards yielding around 8 ton/ha. Before fermentation the grapes are cold macerated for 12 days at 4ºC, to ensure maximum retention of primary fruit aromas and to maximize color extraction. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 28º - 29º C. The total maceration period was of 45 days. The total blend was aged in French oak barrels for a period of 10 months, malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in barrels. After bottling, the wine was aged for an additional 2 months prior to its release.

Fruit bomb. Just drink any time and enjoy. Winner, winner, wine with dinner!
This is a really nice red. I liked it a lot. Enough to immediately buy another case after tasting the first bottle from the 1st case I bought.
The is a great general purpose wine. Enough complexity to make it interesting and enjoyable yet not as heavy and robust as many other reds. I am going to serve it at my daughters wedding. Should be perfect for a large mix of people who many may not be up for the heavy red but still excellent even for those that are.
reat plum and berry Great finish a real mouth full
