Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Chile has embraced the Bordeaux variety Carmenère, and Viña Maipo has really done it justice here. The Rapel Valley offers exceptional terroir for the grape with its loam, clay and sandy soils. Expect a rich, full-bodied red with leather, black fruit, mint and earth notes. My note: Floods the senses with expressive notes of blackberry, black cherry and a terrific cranberry spin. Full-bodied and opulent. Will satisfy even the most savage of thirsts. Carménère food pairings: rare steak, pasta in a meat sauce.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This full bodied Carmenere has notes of oak, vanilla, coconut, prune, coffee, smoke and earth. It was smooth and fruitfully sweet, with refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium to long finish. Impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL – too bad it's a screw top. Tasted Jan/10
