BROODING. LAYERED. VIVACIOUS.

This wine is made by one of Chile’s most rebellious and talented new generation of winemakers; Felipe Garcia. He breaks the rules by blending old-vine Carignan with Bordeaux varieties, and we are so happy he did.

WINE OVERVIEW

This bright and brooding red blend shows the true potential of the Maule and Itata valleys.

TASTING NOTES

Bright yet brooding. Up front, it is all fresh and expressive red berries. Then, on the palate, you find touches of herbs and cocoa. It finishes with bright cherry and vivacity.
