The 2008 Chocapalha Reserva Tinto is a medium to full bodied, integrated wine, with nice aromas of red currant, chocolate and cedar. It has a nice structure with refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium finish. It is ready to drink now or cellar for 5 to 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts. Tasted Jan/12.
