There's much to like about this big-boned blend that features about 65% old-vine Andean Cariñena as well as Syrah and Merlot. Given the players, the color is expectedly huge, and the nose is very intense, a pleasure. Seductive tannins allow for immediate drinkability. If you like a rich, burly berry-and-spice-packed red, this will do the trick.
