This inky/purple-tinged rich full-bodied effort transcends its humble appellation. Dense and full-bodied it is capable of lasting 7-8 years. Insert it in a blind tasting and enjoy the shocking results!

Loads of new wood in this wine that is a bit hard but lots of interesting fruit with a blackberry and mineral character. Lots of Malbec in this. A little overdone but let's wait and see.

50% merlot 25% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. 100% new oak. Planted to clay/limestone soil. Loads of black fruit baking spice and anise jump from the glass on this modern and very clean nose. This palate is dense and rich... 50% merlot 25% malbec and 25% cabernet franc. 100% new oak. Planted to clay/limestone soil. Loads of black fruit baking spice and anise jump from the glass on this modern and very clean nose. This palate is dense and rich showing bright and high-toned black fruit and dark chocolate framed by clove cinnamon and cardamom. Bright and fresh with excellent acids that flow into sturdy but rounded tannins there is plenty of grip and a long intense finish. Quite dynamic yet another blockbuster from this estate.
