Carmenère Grial is among the very best Carmenères produced today and comes from 70 year-old, engrafted vines. Extreme measures were taken in fruit selection which results in a rich, extracted and bold wine capable of many years of extended cellaring. The seductive flavors of blackberry, grilled peppers and dark, spicy cherry linger on the palate.
