A ripe specimen with baked, earthy aromas that settle with airing. Hits with power and layering along with medicinal, oaky flavors that foist chocolate onto the wine's core black-fruit content. Generous despite some ruggedness and heat to the finish. Malbec with Cab Franc, Cab Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot.
