Carmenere Tasted April 2013

8. Santa Carolina Reserva Carmenere (2011)

« Prev Next » 8 of 10
Average price: $18.99 from 2 stores
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 backend and cuts the black cherry and oak spiced finish short. Easy drinking and bold if a bit simple. 86pts
