This is purple in color, with a saturated, rubbery aroma that folds in notes of leather, chocolate and blackberry. It's full and lush, with flavors of lemon, grainy oak, coffee and charred black fruit. Dark, oaky and charred on the finish, it needs a lot of air. Predominantly Malbec, with small additions of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
