Odfjell Vineyards Armador Carmenere 2016
Alluring red purple color with intensive aromas of black fruits and licorice together with spicy notes such as black pepper and cloves, finishing with vanilla and hints of bitter chocolate. The palate is long and refreshing with soft, ripe fruit and a touch of spices.
Dan Odfjell discovered and fell in love with a small corner of the famous Maipo Valley, Chile. Born of rain in Bergen, Norway, he could not resist the attraction of the austral sun in this Virgilian setting. Serendipity would later show that he had found land in Chile's premium red-wine-producing valley, where vitis vinifera has been cultivated since the 17th century. And where a soothing coastal breeze produces a microclimate conducive to distinct and beautiful wines. This was the start of their journey, the start of what we today know as Odfjell Vineyards. In the bygone days of the sail ships, wine provided a safe drink for long voyages. Dan Odfjell, a norwegian 'armador' (shipowner), perpetuates this legacy by making wines to sail from Chile across the seven seas.
