This is always one of Mendoza's classiest blends. There's big fruit, dry wood, bacon and balsamic notes on the alluring bouquet. Full, elastic tannins support cassis and berry flavors as well as more than enough oak. This is dry, lightly herbal, powerful and saucy tasting on the finish. 60% Malbec, 30% Bonarda and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
