Vera Czerny rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby, almost purple color and strong aroma of dark ripe fruit, dried plums with green pepper notes. The wine is a very typical Carmenère with pronounced peppery taste (that I like) - but some of you might be surprised with that unexpected flavor.

There is enough body and structure to this wine to pair it with steak or barbecue. This Carmenère gave me a lot of ripe fruit, maybe even some cacao, well balanced with acidity and soft tannins. Lovely long finish usually reserved for wines of much higher price. Oops Carmenère is an excellent value for every day drinking.

Also, if you enjoy white wines, you must try their Sauvignon Blanc. It taste differently than New Zealands Sauvignon Blancs, I would say more delicate. (Their 2008 vintage received 89 points from Wine Enthusiast and made it to Top 100 Best Buy of 2008). Very enjoyable and again, easy on the valet.
