93 • Tamaya 2008 Carmenère, Limari Valley $10.99. Best Buy.
Inky violet color. Complex aromas of overripe mango-peach compote, sour cherry sauce, grilled pepper and apples, pine needles and toasty cedar follow through on a round, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with great smoothness and effortless depth. Finishes with a crisp, pencil shaving and berry fade with finely polished tannins. A delightful sipper or table wine reminiscent of a perfectly mature Pomerol; pair with steak au poivre.

91 • Echeverria 2008 Carmenère, Central Valley$8.90. Best Buy.
Aromas of chocolate covered cherries and white strawberries and dill pickles follow through on a soft, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with seared pork fat, grilled pepper, melon, and toasty cedar notes. Finishes with a tangy mulberry skin and minerally pencil shaving accented fade. A very flavorful and balanced sipper or table wine reminiscent of a fine Margaux. (tasted on Feb-22-2010)
89 • Echeverria 2007 Reserva, Carmenère, Central Valley$10.90. Best Buy.
Aromas of toasty cedar and sandalwood, baked tomato and earth follow through on a round entry to a dryish medium body with grilled pepper and baked apple notes. Finishes in a crisp, nutty fade with pepper dust and well integrated talc-like tannins. A smoky Bordeaux-like wine for grilled lamb and veal chops. (tasted on Feb-22-2010)
89 • Santa Carolina 2008 Reserva, Carmenère, Rapel Valley $10.99. Best Buy.
Bright fruity, crusty aromas of black raspberry and cherry pie a la mode follow through on a soft, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with vanilla custard, roasted pepper and nut notes. Finishes with a tangy, tart berry and wet stone fade with fine tannins. A smooth, rock solid sipper or table wine. (tasted on Feb-22-2010)
88 • Chilcas 2008 Reserva, Carmenère, Maule Valley $13. Best Buy.
Deep purple. Bright aromas of peppermint bark candy, warm leatherette, delicate menthol, and spicy lingonberry jam aromas follow through on a soft supple entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium body with good depth and a smooth, zesty finish. Very nice. (tasted on Feb-22-2010)
