The 2010 Santa Carolina Merlot Reserva, aged in French oak for 9 months, is a light to medium bodied, fruity wine with notes of blackberry, prune and smoke. It has subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. Drink now and for the next 2 years. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87 pts - great value for $12. Tasted Sept/11.

Full bodied with good concentration. Smokey plum flavour (hIckory BBQ sauce?), coffee. Some tannin, good sweet/sour balance. Easy drinking.
