Solid as a rock, with its own unique set of characteristics. For starters, the wine blends overt new world fruit with some rustic old world touches. In addition, there's Carmenère in the blend, which offers an herbal edge. The only reason this wine doesn't rate higher is that it finishes a bit cloying and tannic. Seems that the vintage just didn'tprovide enough flesh and balance. Imported by Vintus.
