There are few spots more ideal for Carmenere than the Rapel Valley in central Chile. The fruit thrives here and brings a luminous character to the wine in your glass. The nose is fresh with strawberries and red plums, while paprika brings some intriguing complexity in the background. Juicy tannins and great balance complete this pretty, crazy affordable red.

James Suckling

A chewy and tight carmenere with dark berries, chocolate and walnuts. Very reserved and tight. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Lovely, austere and polished, textured finish. Drink now or hold.
