First off, oak is a dominating factor, but if you can handle that, like the fruit can, you should dig this burly, massive Malbec. Aromas of charred wood and sawdust lead into a bold, full-barrel palate of thick black cherry and blackberry. The finish is pure mocha and vanilla, and at all points it's tannic, layered and satisfying.
