2018 Carmenere – While most of the world’s Carmenere hails from the central valleys of Chili, ours is born from the unique terroir of the upper Yakima Valley of Washington. This fruit-forward wine expresses a distinct red berry flavor, especially over-ripe raspberry and chokecherry. The herbal accents begin with green bell pepper, forest floor aroma, leading to raw tobacco, and old barn wood. Find an array of kitchen spices with layers of plum, licorice, and mocha. The distinctive finish lingers with black peppercorn and a touch of cloves and nutmeg.
Historical Origin: Médoc region of Bordeaux, France
