This has green-leaning aromas of tobacco, tomato and grass that are matched by more standard plum and berry notes. It feels tight, tannic and rubbery, with medicinal flavors of herbal black fruits and mint. Solid as a whole, this holds its pose on the finish, although even there it's a touch green. This is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.
