Critical Acclaim

Tim Atkin 94 Points – It’s fascinating to taste TerraNoble’s two top Carmenères side by side. CA1 is a little greener than CA2, with more grip and tannins and an earthy undertone, but it’s a wonderful wine in its own right. Blackberry and cut grass notes are framed by stylish oak.
James Suckling 91 Points – Stewed-blackberry, dark-chocolate, roasted-coffee and green bell-pepper aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, powdery tannins. Concentrated and creamy with fresh-herb notes on the finish.

Description

Grown in the warm Andes foothills of the Colchagua valley, CA1 is a Carmenere of great character and power. This is a rich wine, with intense aromas of ripe red fruit. The round tannins, together with the lush concentration of fruit on the palate reveals to us the best expression of Carmenere grown at the foot of the Andes Mountains.
