"Bright, saturated red-ruby. High-toned, almost liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, blackberry, violet, licorice and mint. Densely packed and nicely delineated, showing a very fine-grained texture to the complex flavors of dark berries and medicinal herbs. Excellent tactile depth here. Finishes with serious but suave tannins and noteworthy grip and length. This very young, rather palate-staining malbec may be even better with a couple years of cellaring."
