|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The 2010 Santa Carolina Carmenère Reserva, aged in French oak for 8 months, is a medium to full bodied, fruity to integrated wine with nice aromas of prune, coffee bean and smoke. The tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is medium. It is ready to drink now and for the next 5 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts - great buy for $12. Tasted Sept/11.
