La Capitana is named after the tallest palm tree in the LaPalmeria estate. These wines are distinguished by their harmonious balance between rich fruit character and the complexity of aging in French oak barrels. Contemporary and stylish.
This Carmenere is round and velvety, full of ripe plum, cassis and blackberry flavors with hints of mocha coffee and dark chocolate. Aging in French oak barrels for nine months.

Deep, saturated blackish-ruby hue. Pure black fruit aromas carry a prominent, minty sweet-oak accent. A rich entry leads a generous, full-bodied palate with soft, chewy tannins. Fruit acidity lends freshness to the palate but still finishes on a thick, hedonistic note. Try with grilled meats.
