Santa Alicia Reserva Maipo Valley Carmenere 2010

Santa Alicia Reserva CarmenerePurchased from World Market, price varies by store

Aaron:  I was pretty disappointed with this bottle but it was pretty inexpensive which justified the trial.  The dull, musky smell was sharp (though not peppery).  Mild berry flavors weren’t sweet but ripe and were coupled with a noticeable hickory smoked cedar (yes, imagine smoking cedar branches over hickory chips).  87 points

Teri: Strong smell of oak and dark wild berries but smooth tannins. The 4 years in the bottle has done the wine well. A slightly muddled flavor up front but then a smooth lingering finish of raspberries leading into oak. 88 points
