Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
Savoury, juicy and mysterious: love it! Robust and brooding with exceptional value, like the rest of the wines in the Santa Carolina line-up. Big black fleshy fruit, loaded with toasty oak, tar and smoke. This full-bodied Chilean red wine is made from the country's signature red grape Carmenère. Features aromas of dark spice, graphite, mint, and cedar. Endless, deep and rich. Discuss world domination over a rare piece of filet mignon.
Carmenère food pairings: wine-braised beef, turkey with heavy sauces, wild boar, bison chilli.

Reviews and Ratings
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This Carmenère has aromas of blueberry, sweet tobacco, cedar, dried eucalyptus leaves, dried petals, and a touch of cinnamon.
On the palate, it is full-bodied with velvety tannins and dark berry flavours, mostly blackberry and blueberry. Subtle floral notes, sweet spice and cedar can also be detected on the palate. Overall, a very enjoyable product!

|This Carmenère from the Rapel Valley is juicy with fleshy dark fruit, mint and cedar spice flavour on the palate. Santa Carolina Reserva de Familia (2014) is medium-plus bodied, toasty and with fine tannins. It was in 1875, Don Luis Pereira came to Chile with vine stocks from Bordeaux France and a dream to make wine. He named the winery after his much loved wife, Doña Carolina Iñiguez. His creation would be called Viña Santa Carolina. - Community Wine Reviews|
