Casas Patronales Carmenere Reserva 2011

Snapseed

Casa Patronales was founded in 1990 by three friends who wanted to produce high quality grapes with an emphasis on the distinctive terrior of the Maule Valley, in 2003 they began exporting their wines internationally. The Maule Valley is the largest wine producing area in Chile, maintaining a long and traditional history of old vine, dry-farmed vineyards that produce large quantities of good value wine. Committed to every stage of the winemaking process, Casa Patronales is ardent in letting the wine express the place in which it is from, believing that wine “is a faithful reflection of its origin, its inimitable character, which comes from specific terroirs”.

Dark garnet in colour with aromas of chocolate and bell pepper. Tart red currant and cherry flavours joined earthy elements in the medium body, grippy tannins introduced tobacco, chocolate and residual cherry notes in the lingering finish. A good value, and a pleasant glass that capably pairs well with a wide variety of dishes.
