Carmen 1997 Reserve Petite Sirah (Chile)

A little green and closed, it seems to be just a notch or two short of being special. There's good life to the fruit, but there's also a heavy minty quality and a bit too much American oak flavor. A relatively new and unusual (for Chile) effort with this grape by winemaker Álvaro Espinoza. Will likely be a better wine in future years. Michael Schachner
