Nicely balanced, smooth, dark fruit. This is an easy drinking wine that complimented lamb chops beautifully. I'll be looking for more. JimLockardOnWine.com

Definitely getting some of that herbal, vaguely minty nose to accompany dark and red fruits. Some tobacco. Highly enjoyable expression of the grape.

Balanced- minty + minor notes of Tabasco, rich and full, plummy chocolate finish. Seems hotter than 14%

Debut vintage of 100% Carmenere from Los Vascos! Probably most elegant Carm I've ever tasted! #smooth

Thoroughly enjoyed with a NY sirloin. Velvety tannins and just a bit of spice.

Disappointing because I was expecting better from the Rothschild collection. This single grape wine is smooth and offers a nice bouquet. Should have been exceptional but it’s not.

Sharp bite. Possibly a bad bottle

Rich purple, jammy, thick and syrupy, smells thick, grapey, slight wood, some tang, ton of fruit, super balanced but not so intricate

It’s alright. A little pruny. Some stewed dark fruit. Good acid but a little hot.

Okay, but I expected more. Nothing that interesting about it’s flavor profile. Just kind of a big red and little else.
