I had not tasted the Carmenere from the Max vineyards for a while until they presented the still-unbottled 2018 Max Reserva Carmenere. The grapes were hand picked early in the morning and went through a sorting table before being crushed and put in stainless steel to ferment. The wine matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, 30% of them new. It's intensely herbal and spicy, varietal and defined, with clean aromas and focused flavors. The palate is juicy and tender, with moderate acidity and a soft mouthfeel. They expect some 165,000 bottles of this to be bottled in four to six lots from the same master blend.

Some bell-pepper notes here with blackcurrants and violets. The palate has a succulent, tangy feel with bright, ripe blackcurrant flavors and soft, pastry-like tannin. Special 150th anniversary edition. Drink or hold.
