Degustation notes

Dense cherry red, a spicy pepper nose, juniper and cloves, a complex palate, with lots of sap and roundness, a long aromatic presence, a modern wine with heavy wood scents, fruity, noticeable tannins and richly aromatic into the finish.

Special notes

Carmenère, die neu entdeckte alte Traubensorte mit Ursprung in Frankreich (Bordeaux) wurde in Chile während langer Zeit mit der Merl ot-Traube verwechselt. Heute wird sie reinsortig gekeltert und gewinnt immer mehr Anhänger.

    Inconsistent - 1 bottle good, the next corked, the next full of sediment. Quality control & consistency seems to be problematic with Sutil. Even the good bottle tasted average at best, there are much better choices in the same price range. I will avoid it next time.
