Miguel Torres Cordillera Carmenere 2016

Great depth of color. The nose offers a splendid and potent expression
of the character of Carménère (forest fruit, eucalyptus, and leather), with
toasty notes of bay leaf and clove, as well as licorice and black pepper.
A big, mouthfilling palate with round tannins. Aromas of toasted bread
and spices on retronasal, culminating in a long finish.
