2011 Carmen Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark in color with a mild nose of dark cherries. On the mid pallet the wine has some lovely black cherries backed by some smooth tannins, some nice dryness, some acidity and some green notes. The wine is medium in length with some mild minty notes subtly there. I would give it an 88-89. Very nice, especially given the price!
