Santa Carolina Petit Verdot Gran Reserva

20140328-194220.jpgLCBO#: 7484
Price: $15.95
Made in: Rapel Valley, Chile
By: Vina Santa Carolina

We are used to Santa Carolina as inexpensive good easy-drinking wines, so was quite surprised to find this one in the Vintages at the LCBO. Beautiful aromas of red grapes with a smooth sweetness to it. Very light hints of leather. The taste is a little milder than the nose. Light tannins creating a bit of dryness with the grapes. A bit of bite in the finish with the alcohol (on the bitter side) but a watery aftertaste as the short end. Notes of cherries and yeast.
