Vitral Carménère 2012 by Viña Maipo

IMG_1079 Grape Variety: 100% Carménère

Very good minus dry red wine with black fruit and ripe black currents over a mixture of baker’s spice and dried herbs. The medium tannins are ripe bringing good structure with the medium acidity. The fruit has medium concentration. The wine has good complexity and will age well for 5-6 years.
