The nose on this heavily oaked, extremely ripe Malbec is minty and stuffed with raisiny notes along with wood-based chocolate and vanilla scents. The palate rests on a beam of acidity, but overall this is very thick and dense, with prune, molasses, mint and an abundance of oak influence. On the finish, the barrel element is omnipresent.
