2011 Santa Carolina Carmenere Cachapoal Estate Reserva 13.5% $12

Spicy on the nose with a nice base of oak joined by aromas of earth, blue fruits, violets, green herbs and brambly fruit. Bright and juicy in the mouth, this delivers pretty big flavors of earth, toasty oak, blueberries, sage and cherry fruit. A hint of sweetness adds roundness to the palate which shows fairly soft tannins, though some wood tannin does add a bit of dryness on the back end and cuts the black cherry and oak spiced finish short. Easy drinking and bold if a bit simple. 86pts
