This massive, highly concentrated Malbec is now six years into its life and it's still a monster. Toasty, unruly aromas of licorice, raisin, leather and crude oil filter into a loud palate with heady black-fruit, coconut and vanilla flavors. It's oaky, sinewy and pumped full of grabby tannins and acidity. It's work to get through this; easy riders need not apply.
