A new wine for me. This is an Antinori project in Chile. A blend of 81% Cabernet sauvignon and 19% Carmenere. Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is nice with plums, black cherries, herbal notes and spice. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this drinks well. Black cherry fruit with slight rosemary note. A bit bitter and drying on the finish. This should drink well for another five to eight years. Good on its own, this will work well with heavier foods. Lamb chops and mashed potatoes would be a nice match.
