Shame on them!! a gold medal for this?? The Santa Carolina, Barrica Selection series is usually dependable, but this one escaped from the zoo. The 2004 Carmenere has an unassuming light berry nose but a ho-hum palate - it was actually initially unpleasant (and no, it was not "corked"). Dirty plums. Some of the unpleasantness blows off in a while, but this is a "crap to OK" wine, don't waste your $15.

Meanwhile, have been poring over the 2006 Bordeaux futures - what's with the prices??? this was not a stellar year guys, come on!!
