The 2014 Viola is Carménère with 12% Cabernet Franc blended in. It was sourced from a cooler part of the Maquis vineyards planted in 1997. They want to avoid green and overripe aromas and flavors and look for red fruit and floral notes, which they find comes naturally from this specific plot. The wine is blended after malolactic and then is put in French oak barrels to mature for 24 months. It has lots of Carménère varietal characteristics - in aromas, flavors and texture. It's somewhat herbal but more on the spicy side. It's elegant and fresh. Very good indeed. Drink date: 2018-2024. Score - 94. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, Oct. 31, 2018)
