Supple, heft, slick.
Finca El Origen is owned by Chile's Santa Carolina; the name refers to the high mountain vineyards that were once an ocean, then mountains, and then a mountain range.
Notes of stony mineral, black raspberry, wild currents, vanilla and salted licorice are woven with espresso, dark chocolate and dried herbs. It has a supple palate lined with generous fruit and a slick texture. Strong bitter elements here such as dark chocolate and coffee and toasted spice dominate the palate, the tannins have some heft and chew.
A wine for grilling.
