($30; 70% cabernet sauvignon, 20% carmenere and 5% each of syrah and cabernet franc) Deep ruby. Vibrant aromas of red and dark berries, cherry-cola and black pepper, with a dried rose overtone. Juicy, gently sweet cherry and blackcurrant flavors are firmed by dusty tannins and pick up a subtle herbal quality with air. Very nicely balanced wine with admirable finishing clarity and nervy persistence.
