Dark, smoky and minty on the nose, with mocha and licorice in the backdrop. The palate is fleshy and full but also oaky and lactic, with creamy flavors of chocolate, syrupy berry fruit and vanilla. Finishes with salty notes, which go against most of the wine's creamy, oaky influences. One-third each of Cabernet, Malbec and Merlot.
