Santa Carolina Reserva Carmenere Rapel Valley 2007
Composition 85% Carménère - 15% Cabernet Sauvignon Appellation Rapel Valley Ageing 9 months Winemaker Andrés Caballero Tasting notes This Carménère Reserva has an intense and deep red colour. It features exuberant fruity aromas with floral hints of violets and soft spicy notes. On the palate, this elegant and full-bodied wine is highly concentrated and complex, with a firm structure, fine tannins and a long and tasting finish.
A value Carmenere at its finest. Does not have the "Green" notes as consumers have come to expect. Not overpowering herbaceousness.. definitely a great value wine
Dark red, med tannins, med smooth. Dark berry flavors with herbal notes.
I tried this for a second time, very veggie. Wife did not like at all. Was better first time. Won't try a third.
