This is a new blend for B Crux, as Touriga Nacional is now part of the mix along with Malbec and Tempranillo. This smells savory and saucy, with a touch of blueberry and green related to the Touriga component. A lifted, lively mouthfeel supports reedy, lightly herbal berry and mint flavors, while cocoa, earth notes and baked flavors drive the finish.
