7% Cabernet Sauvignon Aromas of black currants, fire roasted chilies and spicy green herbs great the nose along with some very well integrated wood accents. Rather nicely focused in the mouth with a core of gentle fruit that hints at strawberry and blackberry flavors that carries with a haunting suggestion of sweetness. while it’s wrapped in gentle tea tones. The oak pops on the back end, adding nuanced mocha and cocoa accents to the palate. There is a faint dried herbal edge across the palate and some firm tannins emerge on the backend and through the moderately long, clean and precise finish. Delicious and eminently drinkable. 89pts

Fine, bit of green bell pepper, green peppercorn over lots of very Cabernet black currant fruit. Spicy floral notes, purple fruits, small berries. Bright, very finely balanced, focused, again very aromatic but not as fruity as even I might like. Texturally very fine, soft tannins, nice tension, perfumey fruit, elegant in the light sense. 88pts

This smells a bit sour with a rather pronounced green pepper and herbaceous top note on the nose. There’s a nice lurking base of fruit here, but it’s hard to get through the vegetal aromas. In the mouth this is bright and juicy with a succulent feel and rather elegant notes of cherry and blueberry fruit buffered by sweet oak spice. There’s a very appealing element here and perhaps this just needs some more time in the bottle, but the nose and a rather tough, drying finish leave me wanting more. 88pts

Nicely aromatic with deep black currant fruit and attractive roast red pepper and herbal elements framed by well-judged toasty oak and carob nuances. Big and powerful in the mouth with a blocky, inelegant feel on entry, as all the structure is completely wrapped in this rich yet silky fruit. It’s a slightly surprising wine and it takes some time to fully warm up to since the aromatics promised more nuance than the palate currently delivers, but this has excellent potential many will enjoy this today for all its sumptuous ripeness. But on the finish, the fruit lightens up somewhat, revealing more red fruits and allowing hints of the aromatic complexity of the nose to return. The acidity on the finish is very refreshing and the tannins superbly fine, allowing a nice tobacco leaf, nutmeg, spice element to roll out on the finale. 91pts

Huge vegetative nose, with notes of chocolate and blackberries. Softened tannins and fruit acidity on the body, with a dry cocoa finish.

Dark and light. Meaning, the flavors are very dark with chocolate, raspberry and blackberries. While the body is light and pinot-esque. This is not a typical carmenere, but it's still great in its own way.

Very dry, interesting overall, little fruit, fairly complex but perhaps disharmonious. (will have to try again as my notes no longer make any sense to me.)

A very nice Carmenere for the price. Nice loral aromas. Nice well rounded mouthfeel. Berry flavors with mod long finish.
