With black-toast oak, lemony notes, balsamic plum aromas and woodsy scents, this blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot gets off to a rocking start. In the mouth, this is rugged and structured, with integrated tannins and rich flavors of toast, mocha, coffee, chocolate and raspberry. The finish is peppery and oaky, but classy. Drink through 2016.
