This opens with dense, earthy aromas of tobacco, coffee grinds and marzipan candy along with blackberry and raisin. The palate feels wide and jammy, with solid tannins that don't bite. A mix of herbal berry, foresty notes and leather comprise the flavor profile, while the finish is gritty, tannic, salty and hard. Give this muscular Malbec plenty of air before drinking.
