Wine Note

Clos des Fous 'Cauquenina'

"-- exotic, perfumed, minty, hinting on eucalyptus, cola nut and dried flowers. It's a multi-grape blend from six old vineyards, some field blends and some with separate varieties; it's made up of almost half of Carignan (Cariņena) with Syrah and Malbec, as well as some 5% to 6% each of Carmenere and Portuguais Bleu, with no oak whatsoever. The palate is superbly integrated and compact, very tasty with lively acidity and a mineral finish. Again, this has a marked style/profile, very showy and aromatic. This has to be one of the best values in Chile." 93 points Luis Gutierrez Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I agree wholeheartedly, perfumed with black fruits, spice, a hint of mint.
Savoury and crunchy with black fruits, liquorice, and spice- delicious!
