Savory and fresh up front, this blend of 80% Tempranillo with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot smells of leather, olive, cola and raspberry. It's a bit raspy and rough on the palate, where hard tannins hold court. Flavors of stalky, savory berry fruits and pepper end toasty, roasted and firm, with abrasiveness that needs to get resolved.
