Our 2012 Max Reserva Carmenère shows an intense ruby red colour with violet hues. A spicy character predominates on the nose, with aromas that remind of black pepper and paprika, all followed by notes of figs and plums, as well as subtle touches of black olives. The aging in barrel added harmonious notes of coffee and black chocolate to this blend of aromas. The wine feels velvety on the palate, with round and polished tannins that emphasize the flavours of black fruits and figs, as well as the variety's classic spicy character.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Max Reserva Carmenere seems to be a little riper than the 2011, and somehow misses some punch, as the palate feels flatter. Yes, the herbal, spicy tones are there, but the wine is less vibrant. Drink now.

Wine SpectatorThere are plenty of savory notes to the dark plum and red currant flavors in this red, which is firmly tannic, with chocolate nib and mocha on the finish. Drink now. 3,500 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastPrickly, herbal berry aromas are gritty and then fall flat. This is big, grabby and clumsy on the palate, with flavors of roasted berry and green herbs. A soupy-tasting finish turns more green the longer it sits. From a hot vintage, this Carmenère tastes baked and compromised.
