Apaltagua Reserva Carmenere is an intense wine, wild purple in color. From start to finish, the touches of tobacco, and red and black cherries intermingle, producing a great potency in the mouth. It possesses a generous body with smooth and friendly tannins. It is a well-rounded wine with a juicy and lingering finish.

Spicy plum, olive and dry herbal aromas get this crisp, medium-bodied Carmenère off to a fair start. The palate is firm and a touch clampy, with bold acidity. Flavors of pepper, red plum, herbs and oak finish with lasting spice notes and a hint of fennel.
