This medium bodied Carmenere has aromas of blackberry, smoke, Earth as well as pleasant notes of green pepper. The tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium with some heat. It has the potential to evolve for the next 5 years, but can already be drunk now. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 88 pts. Tasted May/10.
