It's hard to avoid the wine's rooty, green aromas of bell pepper and spice, which fall in front of a thick, bullish, tannic palate with sweet, slightly baked berry and cassis flavors. Bulky on the finish, which deals bitter chocolate and herb flavors. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% each Merlot and Tempranillo.
