This is one dense, saturated blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. The nose is all black fruits and prune, while the palate runs deep and dense, but without a lot of finesse. Jammy black-fruit and blueberry flavors are peppery, while the finish is hulking. It shows the heat of its alcohol.
