(14.5% alcohol): Bright ruby-red. Reticent scents of dark berries, licorice, menthol and spices, lifted by a floral element. Nicely concentrated, supple Malbec with lovely texture and intensity to its dark berry and spice flavors. Suave and nicely filled in but light on its feet, finishing with broad, fine-grained, firm tannins and excellent length. Boasts lovely early balance but has the structure to evolve gracefully. Lively, sappy and impressive.
