Intense on the nose, with a mixture of cassis and wild berry along with herbal notes inherent to the grape. The mouthfeel is big and fairly tannic, but it's structured and forward-leaning, with black plum, spice and olive flavors. A serious Carmenère for those who know and like the style; newcomers may find it slightly “green” and/or herbal.
