If you want ripe-fruit aromas and flavors along with spice, pepper and coffee accents, this well-oaked but reasonably restrained Malbec is your ticket. The flavors run closer to raspberry and strawberry than many big Malbecs, and the texture and balance are just right. This wine delivers the maximum given its price and pedigree.
