An excellent expression of the varietal, with an intense inky color and primary fruit aromas of blueberry and blackberry, with subtle hints of cocoa and vanilla. This full-bodied Malbec opens beautifully with time, revealing a structured wine with rich and perfectly ripe fruit flavors and a smooth chocolatey finish. The smooth tannins enhance the mouthfeel and will contribute to its ageability.
