Rustic and leathery smelling, the nose has hints of bell pepper, jalapeño and tomato. It feels mildly astringent but has good structure. The flavors of dried red fruit, tobacco, herb and sweet spice are mature and classic, and the finish has a good feel. This is a blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. Drink now.
