Fairly herbal and brushy on the nose, but good in the mouth, with firm tannins supporting herbal black fruit flavors that fold in chocolate and spice. Comes around as it airs, with tobacco and baking spices working the finish. A green-leaning blend of six grapes led by Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
