This ultra extracted, inky Malbec comes from a partnership that includes Paul Hobbs, and while you cannot argue with the wine's density, purity and power, it probably isn't for everyone. With 14.8% alcohol, a ton of color and loads of clove-packed oak, it's giant. Perhaps you wish it less aggressive and more approachable. Or maybe you outright love it, like we did. Regardless, it needs three years of bottle age, that or several hours of air if you plan to drink it now.
