Wine Review: “Dark, statuesque wine with concentrated, potent aromas of black olive, herbs and mulled blackberry. Tastes like textbook Carmenère, but without any jammy overripeness. Flavor of racy spiced berry, olive and  black pepper are all good, and there’s that patented herbal, roasted quality on the finish, but not too much.”
My Review: Dark brick red in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of chalk, red cherry, spices, green pepper, and asparagus.  Tastes of black and green pepper; flat flavors.
