Among Argentine high fliers this blend of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tannat lacks a little. The nose is mildly stemmy and herbal, while the flavors of wild berry and cranberry are a touch reedy. Tannat and Petit Verdot are not commonplace grapes, and maybe that's why the wine seems sort of herbal and edgy despite having its good qualities.
