I found this wine to be good value with it's fruity aromas and flavors of plum jam, chocolate, spices and nuances of toasted oak. This wine would pair well with a variety of meats including ribs, lamb and beef.

The 2011 Carmen Gran Reserva (100%) Carmenère , aged in French oak for 10 months, has appealing aromas of green pepper, yeasty red currant, pomegranate and black cherry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine, with forward acidity, refined tannins and a medium finish. It is a food friendly wine; drink for the next 5+ years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted at Wines of Chile 2013 tasting in October/13 - http://grapeselections.com/wines-of-chile-2013/

Nice bold full bodied red but easy drinking. Goes really well with paired with steak. Value is great.




Natalie's Review

Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenere 2011, El PeƱasco Vineyard, Apalta, Colchagua Valley, Chile: Savoury, dark and complex with a chewy, full-bodied mid-palate. Layers of black fruit with a long finish. Superbly crafted for this price. Great structure and persistence of flavours on the finish. Terrific value. Drink: 2013-2015. 439166 14% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 91/100.
