Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Rooty aromas of tree bark and cola blend with loamy plum and berry scents to create a good bouquet. This is mostly smooth and solid on the palate, with chunky flavors of spiced plum and herbal olive. A peppery finish with herbal, licorice flavors suggests basic Bordeaux. (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
A red wine with an intense, violet-ruby colour. The bouquet is fruity with strong plum, cherry, and mulberry notes. The aroma also has a vegetable edge of ripe red pepper, and the flavour is complex, with jams, spinach, and chocolate. Barrel aging lends this wine pleasant smoky and toast notes, bringing out its spices; texture is soft, with rounded tannins and medium body.

Producer
Founded in 1850, Carmen is Chileís oldest and most historic winery. From its inception Carmen has been recognized as a pioneer in winemaking and viticulture, a tradition that continues to this day. Due to its commitment to quality and innovation, Carmen is a leading Chilean premium winery, exporting to more than 50 countries around the world. Carmenís style is harmonious and lively, seeking to fully express Chileís most valuable asset: its fruit. Our wines invite you on a journey through all of Chileís terroirs, from the Elqui Valley in the North to Cauquenes in the South. Few wineries can offer such a voyage with this singular objective: find the region that allows each variety to find its full expression and essence, and discover the complete range of wines that Chile has to offer. Carmen Gran Reserva wines are the highest expression of their respective grape varieties and reflect their adaptation to the best chilean terroirs. Multidimensional yet balanced, the wines are packed with character and complexity, yet have subtle notes to engage the nose and palate. From extremely low yielding single vineyards, Carmen Gran Reserva wines are aged for 10-12 months in French oak barrels, elevating every experience to a special occasion.
