Smooth fruit and olive aromas are red-tinted and nice, while the palate is juicy, upright and tight, with plum, cherry and beet-like flavors. The finish is a carry over from what comes before, and overall this registers as fresh but common. Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) with Carmenère, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot.
