With an opaque purple color and boysenberry aromas that include notes of raisin and prune, this obtuse, chunky Malbec shows hard tannins and deep, dark flavors of black olive, fig, prune and roasted meat. A toasty, slightly hot finish with licorice notes is bullish. Drink this concentrated, ripe Malbec through 2020.
