Tasting Notes

This Chilean red wine is made from the Carménère grapes that originated in the Bordeaux region of France but are now primarily grown in the South American country. The winemaker, Jean-Pascal Lacaze, recommends pairing the wine with herb crusted lamb, seared tuna or roasted Mediterranean vegetables and the bottle label describes it as ‘packed with exotic spices, floral notes, plums and blackberries’.

We both liked it, and would happily drink it again, although it wasn’t quite up there with our highest rated reds.
