Santa Carolina Carmenere Herencia 2008

Santa Carolina Carmenere Herencia 750ML 2008        
Sku: 53136

 Wine Advocate 93 points (Jun 2014)
The 2008 Herencia Carmenere is a ripe, big Carmenere (also the bottle!) from Peumo, the warmer zone in Cachapoal, the classical region for Carmenere. Here the grape has ripened nicely and the wine offers some tantalizing aromas of creme de cassis, violets, graphite and lavender. It has a lively palate, especially at age seven, and given the low natural acidity of the grape and the extra time, it seems to have polished its tannins and given the wine good balance and more complexity. This is one of the best Carmeneres that I remember. Drink now-2020.
 Wine Spectator 93 points (Jan 30 2013)
Dense, compact and compelling, with a deep core of concentrated dark cherry, plum sauce, grilled fig and mocha. Well-balanced, displaying fine-grained tannins and nuances of woodsy spice, licorice and grilled herb. Drink now through 2018. From Chile.—N.W.

Wine maker notes
Tradition, innovation, and passion: this is Herencia, the icon Carmenere that summarizes Santa Carolina’s over 135 year history. A true expression of the Peumo terroir’s typicity, this wine combines the soul of two of Chile’s best Carmenere valleys. This icon wine is a result of team work, with the participation of over 150 people led by Santa Carolina’s Winemaking Manager, Andres Caballero. The 2007 and 2008 vintages reflect our winery’s Chilean Heritage. This exceptional Carmenere from Peumo, in the Cachapoal Valley, is a deep, dark red with a mature bouquet. It is an elegant wine for very special occasions. Herencia has an ageing potential of at least ten years.
