Ultraripe aromas of prune, chocolaty oak and forest floor are heady and smooth. This is mostly Malbec, with touches of Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. It is fully saturated across a wide palate, with flavors of blackberry, coffee and blackened oak, which makes sense given that this spent a whopping 24 months in barrel. This is a throwback to when Mendoza Malbecs emphasized size over elegance.
