This is the seventh single varietal bottling of Carménère for Moon Curser Vineyards. When the season and winemaking techniques allow, an elegant showing from this rare and challenging grape variety is truly spectacular.
The 2017 Carménère is a medium to full-bodied red wine with a dark ruby red colour. It displays an opulent nose of ripe cherries, white pepper, sage, thyme and mint. The palate also has red cherry and pepper notes, all accompanied by cinnamon and black fruit characters. This plush wine has a velvety tannin structure. This is an incredibly elegant wine that strikes the perfect balance of fruit, spice and tannin. Long finish and luxurious glassy mouthfeel round out the tasting experience. The wine drinks well now but will also evolve nicely in the bottle over the next seven years. Enjoy!
