My local wine guy recommended this wine to me, but I was disappointed. It has an awkward finish that left a bad taste in my mouth. I kept expecting it to open up the second and third days, but didn't get there. It wasn't horrible, but not something I'd buy again.
A best buy in my book. Medium bodies with a silky mouth fell. A nose of hickory with hints of blackberry. Rich in tannins with a subtle wild berry taste. Long, lasting finish.
My Rating 89: Firm good fruit body with complex flavors. Nose strong perfumed with hint of Berries. Real bargain for $ 9 at Costco
Rating 89. This wine is full bodied with strong fruit and tannins with some oak on the nose . Nose also reveal fruity complex aroma
Green, earthy scent. Berry flavor, sour/dry, with a mocha finish.
External Reviews for Santa Rita Carmenere Reserva
This medium-bodied red has a minty aroma that follows through to the palate, where it's joined by currant and red plum flavors. Drink now through 2002.
Fermented in stainless steel but aged briefly on heavily toasted oak staves; this is one big, fruity red. The nose is roasted, offering coffee and charbroiled beef. The palate is young but smooth, with pounds of berry fruit. It's heavily oaked, but the fruit can handle it.
Marshmallow sweetness and oak aromas give it a confected nose, while the mouth is weighty, concentrated and sappy, with mildly raspy berry and plum flavors. More spicy than herbal, with sweetness and forward oak on the finish. A full-force wine, but one thatrsquo;s fairly basic.
Great concentration of dark red fruits, with delicate sweet tones of vanilla, cloves and coconut. On the palate, the wine is powerful and concentrated with ripe, soft savory tannins.
Bright ruby. Attractive aromas of cherry, raspberry, cola and black pepper. Sweet, supple and round, with good intensity to the straightforward dark fruit flavors. In no way complex but very easy to drink and avoiding the greenness of so many inexpensive (and expensive!) merlots. Finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of pepper.
A slightly jammy style, with juicy raspberry and fig notes followed by spice and licorice hints. Good length. For fans of the style. Drink now.
A clean, basic red wine thatrsquo;s focused on standard berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Fresh but simple, with limited raspberry and cherry flavors along with a touch of vanilla. Competent but entirely regular.
All vineyards are planted in vertical shoot position in order to obtain good sunlight exposure and airing. The crop is restricted to 7-8 ton/ha so as to get concentrated grapes. During the season irr
Intense ruby-red colour. Fresh ripe black fruits with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Silky tannins, lovely sweetness and a beautiful long finish.
