Viña Maipo Carmenere/Cabernet 2015 is from Chile and is balanced, supple red wine.
This wine, for the price, is a very good sipper. It is well balanced, offers good fruit, some spice and the tannins are soft and supple making the wine smooth. Aromas of crushed plum and berry are highlighted with black pepper and violets, while the palate shows similar flavours with the addition of a hint of mocha. The complexity of this wine avails itself to simple foods like pizza, tomato based pasta dishes, or straight up meat and potatoes. The berry fruit flavours and spice tones become more pronounced and the structure was up to the task of refreshing my palate.
