2011 Oveja Negra The Lost Barrel
Maule Valley, Chile
Soft and round aromas and flavors of dark red fruits, mocha, fragrant wood, nuanced with nice length and very satisfying as the wine opens. Plenty of body and strength for your favorite meats, and deft enough for firm fish or veg dishes.

"The Lost Barrel wine is intense both in its ruby-red color and aromatics of black and red fruits alongside notes of rose petals and red licorice. Some cedar, coffee and black plum notes appear both in the nose and palate. With a complex structure, firm tannins and a soft texture, this wine showcases excellent balance, bright acidity, and length."
"40% Syrah, 25% Carignan, 25% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot. The Lost Barrel is a blend of the best Oveja Negra lots from its estate vineyards in the Maule Valley. The grapes were hand-picked the third week of April and immediately transported to the winery for sorting and gentle destemming. The grapes were cold macerated for four days followed by a warm ferment in open stainless steel tanks for 15-24 days. During fermentation the cap was punched down three times daily. The wine was then aged for 18 months in French oak (30% new barrels). 14% alc."
