Deep black fruits with green olive come through on the nose. The palate is true to the nose, as blackberry and mulberry, nutmeg and cinnamon, and olive all run through their paces. Tannins are soft. This is a very good and very typical Chilean Carmenere. Drink with churrasco with cilantro. Recommended. 89 points. DBH
