Chaman Red Blend 2013
Wine AdvocateQuite a step up from the previous wines, the 2013 Chaman Red Blend has a floral, high-pitched, attractive nose. It's a mixture of 55% Cabernet Franc, 35% Malbec and 10% Petit Verdot from their estate vineyard in La Consulta. The Malbec and Petit Verdot were fermented together. Juicy and glossy, the nose and palate show very good integration of the oak (it matured in used oak barrels for one year) and although young, it is already developing some complexity. There is a vibrant sensation in the palate, a combination of acidity, a fine texture and fine tannins making it showy and accessible but not banal. After the 2012, the 2013 fulfilled its promises. 16,000 bottles produces.
