For high-end Malbec from Mendoza, this has a slightly exotic tilt. Blueberry, licorice, lemon peel and pastis-like aromas lead to a forward, full-bodied palate that's round as a beach ball but not at all out of shape. Focused flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and toast finish with weight and complexity. Drink this lovely Malbec through 2017; contains 5% Syrah; 140 cases made.
