Great color intensity. On the nose it expresses with splendid force the character of the Carménère variety, (berries, eucalyptus and leather), with notes of roasting -laurel and clove-, liquorice and pepper black. Great amplitude in the mouth and round tannins. Retronasal aromas of toasted bread and spices, ending in a long aftertaste.

This great wine is the ideal companion for roast lamb or pig as well as meats cooked over coals and spiced with aromatic herbs and licorice.

Allspice and cherries to the nose with some olives. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with moderate, natural acidity and smooth tannins. Nothing challenging here. Quite an honest, stripped-down style.

91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The peppery and spicy 2020 Cordillera Carmenere has pungent varietal aromas and flavors, good ripeness at 14% alcohol and good freshness and balance in the palate, where the tannins are fine-grained. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2019 after one year in barrels and foudres.
