The Reserve wines from Casa Julia are sourced from the older more exclusive plantings in the Maipo Valley. The wines are aged in American Oak for up to 12 months. The Carmenère Reserve benefits from the warm days and cool nights in the Maipo Valley. On the nose the Casa Julia has dark fruit aromas paired with a distinctive vegetable note, similar to a green bell pepper. On the palate you find blueberry and blackberry mixed with earthy undertones and firm tannins. You can enjoy this Carmenère with everything from grilled pork loin or blackened chicken to a steak salad with roasted peppers.
