The 2007 Santa Carolina Reserva De Familia Carmenère is medium to full bodied with nice aromas of fruity to INTEGRATED red and black currants, oak and green pepper. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 min) and finish is medium and a bit chalky. This wine is at its peak and can be drunk for the next five or so years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - wine that you won't go wrong with, but for this price or a buck or two more, you can get much better Carmenère. Tasted Dec/10.
