A little herbal and olive-filled from front to back, but with offsetting berry and sweet spice characteristics. The wine features decent dark-fruit flavors and milk chocolate on the finish, but along the way a strong and persistent shock of green drives the wine into a corner it can't escape from. Cabernet with 15% Carmenère.
