(oops) wines are designed with interesting combinations of complementary varietals, anchored by Carmenère, the heritage grape of Chile known as the “Lost Grape of Bordeaux.” An intriguing mix of two red favorite varietals, this blend has a beautiful violet red color. Intensely aromatic with a nose of blackberry and plum fruit with a touch of menthol and dry leaf. The Carmenère contributes more mature aromas and sweetness while the Merlot delivers a delicate, soft touch. Medium-bodied on the palate, with loads of red and black fruit, a velvety texture and a juicy, long ending.
Food Pairing: This vintage has been blended for even more richness and texture. Fruit to the forefront and a light touch of oak makes for great food compatibility. Try with grilled, roasted, or braised meat dishes, especially lamb, medium bodied fish such as salmon or tuna steaks, stews, burgers, pastas, and soups.
