Novas Cabernet-Carmenere is a fabulous organic wine from Chile that's balanced, easy drinking, fresh and smooth. The colour is black cherry red with intense blackcurrant and herbaceous aroma that give way to hints of black pepper, tobacco leaf and chocolate. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings that intense cassis, while the Carmenere adds softness. The palate is medium bodied, fresh and very smooth with lush tannins. An excellent all-rounder that certainly punches above its weight in terms of quality.
