Septima's first crack at making a big wine leaves us intrigued but not thrilled. This is dark, meaty, saturated and most of all heavily oaked. It smells like coconut and veneer, while the rich, bulky palate is packed with resin, vanilla, cinnamon and blackberry. The blend is Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat, and it could stand to be more refined and balanced than it is.
