Santa Carolina Specialties Wild Spirit Mourvèdre 2011

Valle del Cachapoal, Valle del Rapel, Region del Valle Central, ChileA quiet nose at first but with time and air in the glass it builds into subtle shoe polish, leather, anise, perfumed black flower. Fine grained tannins carry big spices - cinnamon, pepper, and saffron - across this medium-bodied wine. Notes of black cherry and gentle dusty earth, thorns, cassis and violet. Good length. Open, decant, and pour with sauced steak.Tasted: 14 October 2014Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 17.00 estimated retail price SK 14.00 MB 18.00 Producer: Viña Santa CarolinaDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
