Dense, grapy and rubbery smelling, but with airing it unveils aromas of violet and blackberry pie. It feels grabby and tannic but healthy, with blueberry, blackberry and herb flavors. Sweet-tasting oak and a pinch of green herb define the finish. This is a blend of 60% Carmenère and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.
