With a concentration level that borders on the brazen, this red wine from the thirty-year-old vines of Carmenère is sparing in its productivity, but generous in sharing its elegant personality and recognizably-unique character. Best enjoyed with grilled meat and both cured and cooked sausages.

Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine was racked into other stainless steel vats, for malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged in the stainless steel vats for 6 months before bottling.
