Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère
Lovely ruby red color with brick-like nuances. Aromas of fresh, ripe fruit such as raspberries, cherries, and plums can be discerned in the nose, along with notes of cocoa, peppermint, black olive, white pepper, and prune. On the palate, an appealing style is backed up by powerful tannins. An easy-to-drink, extremely pleasant wine.
This is pretty green, from the nose right through the palate, and there are just enough forest-berry aromas to carry that. Quite crisp and light with modest tannins, then a slightly simple finish.
