Viña Maquis Viola Colchagua Valley Carménère Cabernet Franc 2009

85% Carmenere gives the wine loads of dark red fruit - black plum, cherry, and raspberry - exotic spice, and a rich, voluptuous, texture. 15% Cabernet Franc provides lift to the aromas and flavors and adds grace notes of crushed herb, tobacco, and black pepper. Powerful and very deep, it finishes firm and rich with dark fruit, herb, and floral notes lingering. A "wow" wine.

Deep ruby red. Very perfumey on the nose with both red and blue berries. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Starts off with some woody elements before opening up with some dark berries and a little bit of heat. A slight vegetal bite in the strong attack but thinning finish. Nice and dry but odd metallic note in finish too. Drink till 2021.
