Color: Dark red-violet
Nose: Cherries, raspberries and oak
Taste: Tart with a lime edge to it. Medium bodied with a bit of spice. Tannins were mild.
Summary: This wine was one of the red blends I tasted in last week’s Wine of Chile blogger tasting. It was the only one of the bunch that I think could be paired up with fish, a hearty swordfish or halibut steak. It would also pair well with chicken.
The blend consists of 56% Carignan, 24% Mourvedre, and 20% Syrah. The fruit is sourced from the Chile’s Maule Valley.
