Hailing from the northern Salta region, this blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Tannat is a bit murky and herbal smelling, with notes of bacon and hickory. The palate is firmly tannic, with pinched, oaky blackberry and saline flavors. On the finish, the tannins are drying and abrasive. Drink from 2015–2021.
