|Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This fruity Carmenere is medium to full bodied with aromas of prune, caramel, smoke, Earth and subtle red currant. To my liking, the typical green pepper component associated with red currant is very subtle here. I didn’t have this wine opened for longer than an hour, so perhaps it may reveal itself if opened longer - hopefully not though. The tannins are subtle and the finish is medium. It should be at its best sometime around 2012 to 2016. Not to diminish this wine’s quality, but I would have liked to see it around the $16 price range and then for sure I would stock up. I definitely recommend this wine. My impression: NICE. Tasted March/10.
