Type: Malbec
Principal varietal(s): Malbec

This youthful, promising red is made from 90% Malbec and 10% Bonarda and sees 50% new oak. Complex set of aromas and flavors: blueberry/raspberry fruit tinged with briary/leafy/tobacco notes as well as a touch of mocha. Broadens and softens considerably with airing - a good sign for the future. At this point a bit tight, but it's a serious wine for the money. - HK 2010-09-20
