Jason Solanki rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Plum and cherry cola nose from the cork. Alluring spice box and cherry aromas from the glass. Medium-bodied with savoury black cherry and dark red fruits on the palate. Very light tannins are backed by mouth-watering good acidity. Short finish is a touch hot. Could cellar for 2 years, but definitely enjoyable now. Tip: Serve this straight out of the cellar or even chill for 5-10 minutes prior to serving. Will pair well with the homemade pizza we're having tonight. Tasted Sept/2012.
Concha y Toro set the benchmark for Carmenère with this wine, and the newly released 2010 continues that tradition. Dry, medium bodied and packed with dark raspberry and black cherry flavours, with just the right touch of toasty oak character. Elegant and suave with a backbone of bright acidity and light tannins balancing the ripe fruit flavours on the finish. A Carmenère with finesse worthy of your dinner table.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
