Siegel Special Reserve Carmenere
Vina Siegel
Chile - Colchagua Valley

Siegel Special Reserve wines represent the union of tradition and innovation in two generations. The grapes are sourced through careful selection of our best vineyards. Their ripe and round tannins clearly express the terroir of Colchagua.

Intense violet-red color, with aromas of black fruits, spices, dark chocolate and dried figs. The palate is balanced and juicy with velvety tannins and a long finish.

vinous logo"Saturated ruby. Ripe, spice-accented blueberry, violet and hints of olive, cracked pepper and woodsmoke on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. Plush and subtly sweet; a spine of juicy acidity adds vivacity and back-end lift. Supple tannins sneak in slowly on the clinging, supple finish, which leaves behind a sweet blue fruit note. - Josh Raynolds"
