This blend of 64% Malbec, 21% Merlot and 15% Mourvèdre is forward in ripe red cherry and plum as well as strawberry-rhubarb pie. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla bean weave throughout the nose and palate, spicing up the fruity core and lingering on the close. It's smooth and plush, with a crushed-satin texture and excellent overall balance and harmony.
