Spicy and dusty smelling, with full-force plum and berry aromas matched by equally potent smoky barrel scents. Thorough in feel, with vivid, oak-accented flavors of wild berry and plum. Round and full on the finish, with lasting resiny flavors that remain after all else has faded away.-MS

"The 2010 Pinot Noir Ritual is more deeply colored than the Reserva cuvee and delivers greater aromatic complexity. Notions of cedar, spice box, cherry blossom, cassis, and strawberry inform the nose of a smooth-textured, savory, nicely concentrated wine with plenty of flavor and solid length. Drink this excellent value over the next 3-4 years." ~JM
VeramonteView all from Veramonte
Veramonte came to life in the late 1990s in Casablanca, a valley unheard of at that time within the wine industry. Led by grand visionary and pioneer of Chilean wine, Agustín Huneeus was the first to invest in the area and introduce the world to Veramonte and Casablanca. Today, Veramonte is a part of González Byass, a family company founded in 1835 that has maintained their values for five generations.
