With pure blackberry aromas and earthy subtleties, this is showing a lot for the price. The palate on this blend of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tannat is grabby but under control, while flavors of coffee, licorice, mint and black fruits conclude on a spicy, complex, mildly oaky finish with modest clamp and tannic bite. Drink this winner now through 2018.
