Rooty and rich at first blush, with dark, black fruit aromas leading the charge. The palate is lively and snappy, with fleshy but short flavors of blackberry, cassis liqueur and coconut. Quite extracted and full but also a touch hard and short, with a few holes in the texture. Carmenère (60%) and Malbec (40%).
