92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2008

($70; 86% carmenere and merlot, with 14% cabernet sauvignon) Deep ruby. Ripe and smoky on the nose, offering pungent cherry and dark berry scents, along with licorice and sexy oak spices. Mouthfilling cherry liqueur and dark chocolate flavors are impressively vibrant for such a concentrated wine, taking on brighter red berry qualities on the finish. This refuses to let go of the palate, leaving behind a strong echo of dark berries.
