CA2 Costa 2014

TerraNoble

This Carmenere is sourced from our vineyards located on the coastal mountain range of the Colchagua Valley. Benefiting from a strong maritime influence, this is a very unique Carmenere, as it offers both a refreshing elegance and character.  

The constant breezes off the Pacific Ocean cool the grapes, slowly maturing the intense aromas of dark fruit and spice. Grapes were picked at maximum of maturity to maintain all of the aromatic potential. Together with the soft texture and intense flavors on the palate, this wine is a perfect expression of Carmenere from the coast of Chile.

Tasting Notes

A deep, intense red color with blue reflections. Complex and elegant aromas of species, smoke and some earthy notes from coastal terroir. Incredible freshness with intense, silky and well- balanced tannins; an elegant combination with the oak after the twelve months of aging.

Food Pairing

Pair with rabbit fricassee, turkey osso buco, or lamb chops.
