The back label tells us the Junta is a Spanish word meaning to gather or collaborate. It is a wine made of mostly Syrah with 30% Carmenere and 5% Cabernet Sauvingnon.
The aromas are toasted spices with notable pepper, plums and black currents, vanilla and blackberries with strong undertones of smoked meat and grilled herbs. The palate is sweet and earthy with good intensity and flavours of rich dark chocolate. Good acidity here to lift the wine and the finish is savoury.
Pair this wine with roasted or grilled meats.
