This proved quite popular at a recent tasting. The name 11 minutes refers to the amount of time the juice is in contact with the skins. It comes in an attractive squat bottle with a glass stopper. A blend of Corvina 50%, Trebbiano 25%, Syrah 15%, and Carménère 10%. Pale, silvery salmon in color. Clear and bright. The nose is pretty with maraschino cherries and slight strawberry notes. On the palate, this is light bodied but not wimpy. Notes of cherry licorice. Very refreshing with some depth. Orange peel/pith comes out towards the moderately lengthy finish. This drinks quite well now and probably should be consumed over the next couple of years. A nice wine on its own, this will work well with lighter foods, but also a burger or ribs off the grill.
