Standing to attention, the dark, robust stature of Malbec is unmistaken in the glass. However, upon tasting, it reveals a warm, inviting side, aided by the round, juiciness of ripe Merlot. Cassis, cherries and dark plum can be found on the nose with a touch of cedar. A big, mouth-filling palate is loaded with forest fruit sweetness and framed by cocoa dusted tannins with sprinklings of vanilla bean, coffee and spice. Powerful and concentrated, this is a blend substance and style, with Malbec taking all the limelight it deserves.
