Pérez Cruz makes some nice wines, but this blend of Petit Verdot, Carmenère and Malbec is so full of herbaceous aromas and flavors of juniper, olive and coffee grinds that it's a struggle to get through. Yes, the mouthfeel and structure are that of a serious wine. But the aromas and flavors are so green and mean that it's impossible to rate this blend higher.
