So, this is a tourist wine, no matter what they call it. I find it funny that Robert Parker gave it 88 points, but this wine has no umph to it. It's Cabernet Sauv, Carmenere and Syrah, but it's lacking depth, which is what I need. For those that like a medium dry wine, this is actually quite good, but I am just missing that something something.

I can taste some dark plums, mild tannins, and just the faintest hint of nutmeg. Give it a try; your opinion might be different from mine.
