The result of groundbreaking research aimed at defining Carmenere’s potential in Chile.
Intense ruby red with violet hues. On the nose, delicate aromas of red and black fruits with hints of coffee. On the palate, harmonious, with very good structure, soft tannins and notes of ripe red fruits, spices and a soft touch of black pepper. Long, lingering finish.
Makes an interesting pairing with curries, italian sausage, or Texas-style ribs.
For a seven-year-old wine this has a lot of maturing cranberries and sour cherries, in addition to morello cherries, dark plums and vanilla. The palate is very polished with plush fruit, balanced out by fleshy and focused tannins.James Suckling April 2019
Casa Silva makes some of the most varietal Carmenère in Chile, and this special selection is even more loaded with cola, eucalyptus and minty blackberry aromas than other wines from Los Lingues. A pinched palate is tight and clipped despite this being a mature 2012. Burnt oak, burnt coffee and herbal black fruit flavors finish with peppery spice, clove and the inherent green essence always shown by wines from this property.Wine Enthusiast September 2019
It’s unusual to find aged wines in Chile, where almost everything is sold at the foot of the canyon and most vineyards don’t even keep their produce. The second virtue of this line of wines from Casa Silva is a mature, herbal, fruity and jammy character held together by an excellent wood structure, lush on the palate and juicy in the mouth, while the nose continues to evolve.Vinous March 2020
