Casa Silva Carmenere Cuvee Colchuga 2018
Casa Silva, the Carmenere experts, elevate the conversation about less-expensive Carmenere.
Bright and intense ruby red. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of spices. On the palate, it is round and powerful with sweet soft tannins and balanced acidity. Long finish.
Great pairing with a steak and chimichurri sauce, Mexican fajitas, grilled chicken, roasted portobello mushrooms, or a spicy ratatouille.
The Cuvee Colchagua Carmenere is a blend of grapes from Casa Silva's Los Lingues vineyard in the Andes and the Lolol vineyard in the Costa zone. The wine is cold soaked, fermented with regular pumpovers, then 50% of the blend is aged in oak for eight months.
