Opens oakier than the younger '05, with coffee, toffee and mocha aromas along with touches of olive and green tobacco. The wine has a full, robust, tannic feel and deep, sweet berry and cassis flavors. Huge, saturated and rocky due to the tannins, but really good. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Monastrell and Tempranillo is the mix.
