This big, oaky specimen opens with aromas of cheesy berry, vanilla, spice and heat on the bouquet. It feels tannic, full bodied and resiny, with tastes of wood, dried cheese, vanilla and roasted berry. The finish shows residual oak, hickory and soupy berry leftovers. A bomber that's fully oaked, almost to the point of being overdone. A blend of 66% Malbec, 20% Cabernet and 14% Tempranillo.
