A bit bulky and forward, but there's enough ripe, solid red-fruit aromas to keep you interested. The palate is full of cherry and crisp raspberry, while the finish shows a hint of citrus peel. The blend is Carignan with portions of Tempranillo and Syrah.
Bold in color, with a stewy nose that oozes raisin and licorice. The palate is heavy, with bacon and reduced berry flavors. Flat and a touch burnt late, and in general it’s in dire need of an infusion of acidity.
