La Playa does a good job capturing Colchagua's warmth and translating that into healthy wines like this. Light oak aromas are manifested as butter, dill and coconut, while berry fruit and cola are also part of the aromatic package. It's a bit lean and snappy in the mouth, with strawberry and raspberry flavors mixed with carob and cream. Tight and typical for solid Carmenère.
