Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe fruit, but it just doesn`t feel as if it were varietal. The nose and palate are overripe, with raisin, raisin-skin and prune flavors. A dry, pinching finish is grabby and showing a hint of cocoa-dusted mocha. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is bone dry, with a refined structure and sensual acidity. The flavors of spice, cedar, tobacco and dark fruit are attractive, coming across as fresh and sensuous, but with a firm minerality that needs to soften. Hold until 2014. This is dry and weighty, with oaky flavors of ripe grilled meat along with modest cherry-berry fruits. There`s something sharp and jagged going on, and the feel is getting tired, which will likely resolve itself after 2014.
