Dark maroon color. Smells of desert rocks in the rain and licorice. Flavors are dense and very dry. Chewy. Some more anise and plenty of dark chocolate. Nice streak of red fruits. This is a nice balanced red. Has less tobacco leaf and smoke than some other Carmenere, but it’s worthy of the Gran Reserva moniker.

Delicious! What a steal. Could drink this all night. Some Cab characteristics, but a bit lighter on the backside. That doesn’t mean anything except to me. Lovely wine for the price, well balanced- cardamon, dirty, apples, strawberry, very ripe plum. Can I find more?
