Graphite, molasses, foresty notes and briny leather are the prime aromas on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenère and Petit Verdot. The mouthfeel is layered and fairly deep, with a firm structure and strong tannins. Roasted black-fruit flavors come with pepper and toast, while the finish offers even more pepper, olive and tobacco notes.
