Tasting notes
This superb wine isintense and deep with a rich crimson red color. Its complex bouquet of fresh black fruit and spice notes, signature to this variety, is elegantly combined with the characteristics given by the oak aging. Potent and concentrated while maintaining its elegance and richness, it is a flavorful and persistent wine with excellent ageing potential.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2008)
The 2004 Carmenere Pehuen is a saturated purple color with aromas of spice box, smoke, cassis, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine with plenty of blue fruit flavors, a firm structure, solid depth, and a lengthy, slightly tannic finish. Give it a few years in the cellar to round out and drink it from 2011 to 2019.

Wine maker notes
De-stemmed and partially crushed grapes were cold macerated for five days prior to the fermentation process, which was carried out at 28C. Frequent pumping-over was performed during two thirds of the time and then reduced by half so as to extract the maximum potential from the wine. Post fermentation maceration for 20 days allowed this wine to develop its characteristic sweetness and roundness. Malolactic fermentation took place in 100% French oak barrels to ensure complete structure and color set. The wine remained in the barrels for 18 months prior to bottling.

Technical notes
95% Carmenere, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (some vines dating back to the 1940s)

Food pairing
Matches well with barbecue, venison, wild game and fowl, ripe cheeses and spicy red meats.
