2015 Mareas Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon-Carmenere

This wine hails from a unique region of the Colchagua Valley, where cool coastal breezes regulate the warm daytime temperatures and aid in a controlled ripening season. These optimal growing conditions result in grapes with fully developed and concentrated flavors. On the palate, ripe plum, cherry and currant are exquisitely interwoven with savory notes of dried herbs and tobacco. Red meats will pair best, but earthy vegetable dishes would also make a delightful partner.
