Blueberry, spice, sandalwood and foresty aromas are the good elements; funky, foxy additions not so much. The palate sports a raw, scratchy feel with hard tannins that go with strawberry, plum and vanilla flavors. Tastes and feels lactic on the finish, with a snappy offset. Good Malbec but it struggles to achieve harmony and total balance.
