This Cabernet-Malbec-Petit Verdot blend smells smoky and rich, with lemony oak notes. But in the mouth, it's tight as a drum, with an unbreakable structure. Dark spice and clove notes accent ripe berry fruit that's not jammy and which has absorbed its oak well. Its firm, tannic finish will stand guard as it ages for a decade or more. Drink 2020–2030.
