Dark and meaty Carménère with balsamic, olive and warm berry aromas. The palate has good tannins, vivacity and clamp, so it's not a dead-weight, overly rich wine. On the contrary, it's lively, toasty and shows the right blend of olive, pepper, chocolate and blackberry flavors. Snappy due to good acidity, but also deeply flavored and layered. Drink now through 2014.
