Gran Reserva Etiqueta Negra 2014

Great-bodied and character wines, with well integrated wood (French and American oak, 10-12 months of aging) that glorifies the fruit and results in unique and complex wines, that expresses the terroir character of the slopes of our Rosario Estate.

Tasting Notes

The wine has  a ripe fruit profile style with fresh and spicy notes and the mouth is soft and with minerals tannis and both are due to the mediterranean macroclimate with a fresh mesoclimate (high influence from the Maipo river and fresh winds) and finally the soil is volcanic with high content of minerals and high percentage of angular rocks.

Food Pairing

The Etiqueta Negra is very approachable rich, medium to full body, plummy, with very round and ripe tannins and with a woody secondary taste that goes well with grilled, roasted or braised red meats. It can also works for barbecue.
