Smells a little feline at first, but it settles with air while still remaining spunky, herbal and typical of Los Lingues Carmenère. This is a true terroir wine; it has green pepper and leathery raspberry flavors along with a peppery, spicy finish. Best for those who really know the variety. First-timers may be surprised by its profound herbal character.
