In every vintage this blend of Cabernet, Malbec, Merlot and Carmenère gets a little better, and the 2005 is the best yet. It's a ripe one for sure, with licorice, kirsch and earthy warmth on the nose. The body is big and the wine tastes of berry jam, licorice and chocolate. Balanced and long, with bitter espresso on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
