Ventisquero 2014 Vertice Apalta Vineyard Carmenère-Syrah (Colchagua Valley)

#27 Enthusiast 100 2019
Return to List

Ventisquero may make more expensive wines but none are better than this version of Vertice Carmenère-Syrah, from the winery's best slopes at Apalta in Colchagua. Foresty aromas of cool underbrush, mint, menthol and blackberry feed into a palate with steely acidity, which this full-bodied red needs. Cassis, blackberry, mocha and tobacco flavors wind down on an appealingly oaky finish. Drink through 2030. Michael Schachner
