88 pts. Wine Enthusiast: July, 2011
Leather, raisin, earth and lightly baked berry aromas precede a woody, vanilla-infused palate with blackberry and spicecake flavors. Balanced and lively on the tongue, with a dry, barrel-spiced finish. Solid and appealing, but a little oaky.

A step up is the purple-colored 2009 Carmenere Single Vineyard (Vinedos Max). Notions of sage, thyme, balsamic, and blueberry lead to a superficial but pleasant wine with ample savory fruit and moderate length. Drink it over the next 4–5 years.
