A dense nose with prune, mint and green-herb aromas is soft, round and loses spunk as it breathes. A wide chunky palate is full but inexact, while this tastes oaky and savory, with spice, berry and tobacco flavors. Heat and chewy tannins propel the finish on this Apalta Carmenère. Drink through 2020.
