This Malbec-led blend is bright purple in color, with jammy aromas of boysenberry and blueberry that are distinctly green at the core. A narrow, reduced palate leads to pinched flavors of boysenberry and raw oak. On the finish, hard tannins and rubbery black-fruit extract create a gritty feel that fails to expand with airing.
