This fruity Carmenere is medium to full bodied with aromas of prune, caramel, smoke, Earth and subtle red currant. To my liking, the typical green pepper component associated with red currant is very subtle here. I didn’t have this wine opened for longer than an hour, so perhaps it may reveal itself if opened longer - hopefully not though. The tannins are subtle and the finish is medium. It should be at its best sometime around 2012 to 2016. Not to diminish this wine’s quality, but I would have liked to see it around the $16 price range and then for sure I would stock up. I definitely recommend this wine. My impression: NICE. Tasted March/10.

Stewed blackberry and black currant aromas from the cork. Medium+ aromas of black currant, black cherry, and earth with hints of stewed black fruits and barnyard. Medium+ bodied with refined tannins that are silky smooth, yet drying. Nice black currant/blackberry sweet ripe fruits, oak spice, and earthy flavours. Good acids, rush of spice and hints of purple fruits on the slightly warm, and lengthy finish. Could be aged another 2 years, but drinking great now. Tasted Apr/2014.
