A blend that echoes Chile's historic and signature varietals, blending Carmenere, Carignan and old vine Pais. Aromas of Mediterranean herbs and red fruit on the nose lead to great acidity and juiciness on the palate. Finish is lively and the perfect balance of freshness and rusticity. Food Pairing: Enjoy with steak, barbeque, and aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe blend of the 2016 Canto Sur is the same as in 2015-50% Carménère and 25% each Cariñena and País. Both this and the Canto Norte are bottled unoaked, this one after four months in concrete tanks. It's very fruit-driven and fresh, with very fine tannins and a pleasant mouthfeel. It developed more Mediterranean aromas of aromatic herbs after some time in the glass. A lovely red blend.

Wine EnthusiastWith Carmenère and País in the blend along with Carignan, this shows a lot of "old country" character, namely a saucy, savory nose with herbal red-berry hints. Herbal plum and peppery flavors fade on an undistinguished finish.
