Although this smells raw, woody and even a bit citric, sometimes a red wine that's not over the top is in order, and this Cabernet Sauvignon-Carmenère blend fits that bill. A tight lean racy palate offers flavors of red citric fruits, oak and herbs. Barrel spice is dominant on a tight energetic finish.
