The super varietal, herbal and spicy 2016 Carmenere was harvested very late, as grapes in this cold location in a cool vintage ripen very slowly but they ripen fully. The wine is therefore warm, with some noticeable alcohol in the finish. It matured 24 months in oak, so it felt generously oaked even if the wood is quite integrated. 8,400 bottles produced.
