Here's a fiery, bolstered blend of Malbec, Cabernet and Syrah that burns the nostrils with berry, herb and minty oak aromas. The palate gets some major points for its sweet, pure black-fruit flavors but there always seems to be some protruding alcohol that makes you question the label's stated 14%. One one hand it's handsome and just right; on the other it seems overdone.
