2011 Oveja Negra Carmenere Single Vineyard
Maule Valley, Chile
Very satisfying Carmenere with dark, intense, and focussed fruit, good acidity, and a touch of spice at the finish. Pairs nicely with hard cheese and pretty much anything off the grill.
$14.39 as part of a mixed case.

"This ruby-red colored wine has aromas of black and white pepper, dark chocolate that mingle with savory curry characters and deep black plum notes in the background. On the palate, blackberry notes prevail against the smooth texture with fine tannins. This Carmenere shows a great balance, fresh acidity and a long lasting persistence."
"95% Carmenere, 3% Pais, 2% Petit Verdot. The grapes were hand-picked the second week of May and immediately transported to the winery for sorting and gentle de-stemming. Next, the fruit was warm fermented in open stainless steel tanks lasting three weeks and punch downs took place three times daily. The wine was then aged for 18 months in French (90%) and American (10%) oak. 13.5% alc."
