Estampa 2014 Fina Reserva D.O. Marchigüe Family Estate Carmenere Blend

90 Points
Wine Spectator

Mission Codename Taken for 'Granite'

Today’s Estampa 2014 Fina Reserva Carmenere Blend is a complex and richly delicious wine that we adore! 2014 was a tough vintage for Marchigüe in Chile’s Colchagua Valley. Yields were low due to frost, but the summer was warm, which provided excellent and even ripening, making for a complicated and excellent wine.

Complex and bold on the nose, with aromas of smoky black cherry, blackberry cordial, grilled pepper, black licorice, clove, mixed brown spice, spiced cherry candy, dried fall leaves and molasses. Rich and complex, with flavors of stewed plum, black cherry, and blackberry, followed by flinty mineral, spice box, grilled dry mission fig. spice box, graphite and subtle cracked pepper.

Wine Spectator gave today’s today’s delicious delight of a wine a 91 point score. This is a value-priced blend of Carménère, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah is a really special, complex and layered wine that we know you’ll love.

.

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

90 Points - Wine Spectator - ”A lithe and complex red, with concentrated flavors of dark cherry, red plum and dried raspberry that are flanked by notes of dried green herb and sandalwood. Dark chocolate details show on the rich and savory finish. Drink now through 2020.”
