Spicy, fresh, extracted.
Chile's flagship Carmenere variety is a rarity in the Okanagan but Moon Curser is an advocate of more obscure varieties like this one.
Aromas of black pepper and purple berries, iodine, kirsch and chocolate, coffee and wild herbs are echoed on the palate. It leads with freshness and purple fruit and culminates in tealeaf and toasted oak; it seems overly extracted but according to the winery the grapes were not crushed. I recommend decanting before serving.
