Deep as always, but it steers clear of being too reduced and jammy. In what was a warm year, this Malbec has a mild granular, ultrarich quality that swallows some of the wine's spine and acidity. What's left is a rich, big red with coconut, vanilla, chocolate and just enough zest to keep it squarely balanced. With 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Imported by Baystate Wine Co.
