This blend of Carmenère, Cabernet and Syrah sucks you in via spice, herb and black-fruit aromas. The palate feels smooth, rich and saturated, while minty, savory oak notes frame barbecued and black-fruit flavors. Now there's more oak than anything on the finish, but good acidity and balance suggest that things will settle with more time in bottle. Drink from 2014–2017.
