Bold sun-enriched aromas of olive, spice, tobacco and blackberry are what you'd expect from this warm-climate Carmenère grown on magnesium-infused soils. A full sappy palate is syrupy, while this big boy tastes of blackened toasty blackberry and cassis along with herbs. An easy, almost soft finish isn't demanding.
