Chateau Los Boldos, Grande Reserve Carmenere 2018, Cachapoal Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A medium-throttle carmenere that highlights the grape’s red-fruit character.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, blackberry, red currant, red cherry and rosehip.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied carmenere has medium-intensity, red-fruit flavors suggested on the supported by medium acidity and slightly-grippy, medium-plus tannin ultimately completing with a medium finish.
The wine is mostly straightforward and would pair well with grilled red or white meats.
Tasting Note: Our wines are crafted exclusively from our vineyards, where we strive for excellence every day, blending the vigor and grandeur of the Andes with the elegance and dedication of our European legacy. Harvested by hand carefully selected, long-established vineyards, this wine was aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. It has a deep red color with purplish hues. It presents aromas of ripe berries with a hint of spices and toast. On the palate it has great structure, velvety tannins and a long, lingering finish.
