Loamy, rich, baked aromas of blackberry and cassis sit on the precipice of jammy and raisiny. In the mouth, tartaric acid sticks out, creating a tolerable inbalance between raisiny fruit and pushy zest. Meanwhile, flavors of coconut, vanilla, mocha and baked black fruits are hedonistic and rich. Drink through 2018. This is 85% Malbec with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
