Winemaker Sven Bruchfeld has stepped up his Malbec game with this wine. The nose is jammy and full of cassis, blackberry, leather and a whiff of fine aged cheese. It feels lush and dense, with powerful, driving flavors of blackberry, dark plum, spice and herb. It's big but not punishing on the slightly minty finish. Drink now–2015.
