The 2012 Chilensis Reserva Carmenère has intense aromas of eucalyptus and black berry. It is a medium to full-bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine, with checked acidity, refined tannins and a medium finish. Drink with food or enjoy on its own; drink now-2016. My impression: NICE, 88 pts – recommended for its quality; Chilensis has long been on my list of high quality value wines. Tasted at Wines of Chile 2013 tasting in October/13 - http://grapeselections.com/wines-of-chile-2013/
