2011 Casa Silva, Micro Terroir Carmenere, Los Lingues Vineyard, Colchagua Valley, Chile

Posted on


This is perhaps one of Chile’s most famous wine producing areas. This high altitude vineyard in the Colchagua Valley, starts off at 1,000 foot elevation and goes to over 3,000 feet, produces some of the best examples of Carmenere fruit. The wine from this area provides a distinctive smoky and spicy character to the wine. Dark cherries and black fruit swirl in the mouth. An “old world” taste provides a lasting finish. A perfect pairing with pork or beef. Actually had this with a pepperoni pizza and still was winner!
