Concentrated on the nose, with spice, cola, leather and a pinch of salinic oyster shell. Feels round and healthy, with depth and textural tannins. Tastes dark and sweet, with blackberry, chocolate and licorice flavors. Toasty, solid and woodsy on the finish. Carmenère with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
