Powerful tannins are the hallmark of this dense wine, hardly surprising considering the blending of Malbec and Tannat. The wine also has the concentrated fruit to go with the structure, with its black plum and dark berry flavors. Structure and fleshy fruit are coming together well, just needing time. Drink from 2018.
