|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The 2008 Santa Carolina Reserva De Familia Carmenère, which sits in a glass fortress that weighs more than the wine itself, is medium bodied with nice aromas of integrated dark red fruit (black currant/blackberry) and intense coconut and vanilla. It is tannic (decant for 30 to 60 min) and the finish is medium to long. It is good to drink now and has the potential to evolve for the next 5-10 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts - bottle I tried was a bit corked. Tasted Sept/11.
