|Mark Britton rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
This is a very peppery carmenere essentially embodying the traditional Chilean carmenere flavours. Not the best wine Montes produces but that doesn't mean much because they are a excellent producer. The catch is you can get better for the $19.95 price point.
|Hickory smoked, campfire aromas lead off the nose, which has dense berry and curt minerality at the core. The palate is chewy, meaty and rich, with toasty, woody, spicy flavors of dark fruits and chocolate. Almost blackened at points, but undeniably from good grapes.
