Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Oveja Negra The Lost Barrel is composed of 40% Syrah, 40% Carignan, 18% Carmenere and 2% Petit Verdot and aged in French oak for 12 months. It is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with intense aromas of blackberry, blueberry, bit of greenness, pine, oak and vanilla. It has a nice acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 to 60 min) and a long finish. This sipper is good to drink now or can be aged for another 5+ years, with the potential to evolve into more complex wine. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - though $24.95 give this one a try. Aug/12.
