When this powerhouse icon red was introduced with the '97 vintage it was heavily weighted to Cabernet Sauvignon. But now Malbec accounts for 32% of the blend. The result in this excellent year is a forward wine with laser-beam acidity framing bright blueberry and cassis flavors. It has perfect structure and avoids any of the softness and heaviness that sometimes plague New World super reds. Imported by Billington Imports.
