Cab 2016 med



100% Carménère

estate grown

The 2016 growing season never reached extreme temperatures and with long summer Lariana Carmenere achieved balance of sugar/phenolic without diminishing acidity.

Deep, well-defined nose focuses on blue fruit, black cherry, plum compote and a dusting of cacao. Flavours are further swathed by baking spices, more of the dark plum and rich mocha notes.

Duck breast with a rich plum sauce, any other game bird and chicken in the intricate mole sauce comes to mind.
