Deep Ruby with medium intensity aromas of black and red fruits with herbs, spice and toasty notes. On the palate this youthful wine shows flavors of blueberry, red cherry, plum and slight herbaceous and spice notes. Well balanced with vivid acidity and ripe tannins, full-body ending with toasty vanilla character. Very good, bottle age will benefit. Tasting Sample.

Dark fruit with hints of mocha and herbs. Best Carmenere I've had so far.

Deep dark red color with black and red fruit and sweet spice. On the palate blackberry, plum and cherry with a touch of peppery spice and firm tannins. Well balanced the wine needs some decanting to enjoy. Nice. Tasting Sample.

Super spicy! Crazy wild blackberry with a hint of that Carmenere greenness, in the good way.

Rose's Cafe Wine Review: My son-inlaw shared this 2010 Carmenere from Chile the other night. This varietal was new to me, and I was impressed! It's a medium-bodied red with soft tannins and a hint of spice. Nice! http://rosescafe1.blogspot.com #rosescafe1
