Baron Philippe de Rothschild Anderra Carmenere 2012
Dense purple color, with violet streaks. Exceptional range of black fruit aromas and flavors, such as blackcurrant, blackberry, strawberry, and cherry, mingled with touches of roasted coffee. A touch of vanilla oak complements the fruit and the ripe, sweet finish. Goes perfectly with red meat, savory dishes (like earthy stews), spicy dishes (like braised short ribs, chile con carne, Texas ribs, or steak au poivre), or cheese.
100% Carmenere. Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., established in 1933, is located at Pauillac in the Medoc. Famous for two centuries, first in banking then in wine, the Rothschild name comes from the German phrase "Das Rote Schild"—a reference to the Red Shield which originally served as the family sign. They have been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category—from the chateaux wines like the renowned Chateau Mouton Rothschild, their flagship wine, to branded wines such as the famous Mouton Cadet. Anderra has its origin in the heart of South America, at the foot of the Andes mountains, and in the extraordinary diversity of Chile's winegrowing regions. Brought to perfection by Baron Philippe de Rotchschild's know-how, Anderra is an invitation to discover the authenticity and rich flavors of the Andes terroir. Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers have sought to express the distinctive characteristics of this Carmenere by rigorously selecting and vinifying grapes from only the best parcels of the Chilean vineyard.
