One sniff gives this away as real-deal Carmenère, meaning it's spicy, foxy and fruity, but also herbal and piquant. A deep, firm palate is well cushioned and in balance. This pours on dark flavors of peppery blackberry prior to a toasty finish. If any wine captures the essence of Peumo Carmenère, this is it. Drink through 2022.
