Rogue Vine, Super Itata Tinto 2014, Itata Valley, Chile
Tasting Note: A bright, energetic, fruit-filled red blend from Chile.
Purple-to-ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, strawberry and Sweethearts candy.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied red blend reveals supple red fruit with dashes of black fruit thrown in for good measure.
Bottle Note: From hidden old treasures at the Itata Hills vineyards that have been very difficult to find. A soft, smooth, complex and fresh red wine. Made of syrah 33%, malbec 33% and carignan 34%. Old vine wines aged in old barriques, made a wine to discover slow, with time, little by little, to fully enjoy it. A wine made by hands with friends. Bottles: 2,100.
