Slightly heavy, overripe aromas of prune and dessicated berry lead to a wide, blocky palate that's fairly oaky despite all the time this has spent in bottle. Flavors of loamy berry, resiny wood and baked black plum finish earthy but a touch flat. Drink this blend of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc now.
