Showing some maturity, this wine offers a typical Bordeaux blend dominated by Merlot, along with some Malbec to give color and tannin. It's rich, fruity and ripe. Black fruits and aromatic acidity are supplemented by the light wood aging and smoky character apparent in the aftertaste. Drink from 2016.
