It takes a while for the wine's plum and berry aromas to rise up, but in the mouth it's a meaty Malbec with plum, berry and cassis flavors as well as a clean, precise, well-woven feel. A rock-solid wine with coffee and chocolate on the finish. Meets all expectations for a reserve-level Malbec in this price range.
