|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The 2008 Caliterra Bio Sur Carmenere Reserva Especial is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with notes of smoke and green pepper on the nose and blackberry, black cherry and more green pepper on the palate. It has refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium and a bit alcoholic. Drink now as the screw cap enclosure disallows aging. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 88 pts - good for lovers of greenage, especially at $13. Tasted Oct/11.
