43 % Malbec, 36 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah, 10 % Petit Verdot.
Aging: 100% in French oak barrels for 12 months.
The malbec brings red fruit and floral aromas while the syrah offers spicy notes. The softness of the Malbec blended with the tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the structure of the Petit Verdot allow a complex and harmonious wine with a long finish.
"Dark and juicy, with plum, boysenberry, raisin and fruitcake flavors backed by dark cocoa and enticing cigar smoke notes. The finish is long and fleshy. A fun, hedonistic wine. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2010."
A good hearty red with a lack of complexity. Decent fruit and a velvety finish. Solid in its class.
