Casa Silva is Chile’s Carmenere Expert. You will not find a better bottle of this varietal made by anyone else. Period.
A single-vineyard wine from Casa Silva's Los Lingues vineyard.
Violet red in color with great intensity and brilliance. Aromas of blackcurrants, plum, blackberries, licorice, menthol and lavender. The palate has good acidity and balance with harmonious and well-integrated tannins.
Great pairing with a steak and chimichurri sauce, Mexican fajitas, grilled chicken, roasted portobello mushrooms, or a spicy ratatouille.
