Dark Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas, adding some cedar and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and black plums. Fine tannins, medium finish, vivid acidity, ending with a fruit, oak and sweet spice. touch of silky sweetness.

Pretty nice full body, blueberry and blackberry on the palate.. Touch of barnyard, mint, and a lingering finish.. Real nice blend of Malbec, cab, and Syrah.

Off aromatic to the nose, reviewed two bottles and I think it was the fruit condition and aging. Wait till the next vintage.

Fantastic wine. Ruby colored. Intense and very special nose, red fruit. Dry and balanced, tannic but smooth.

Whatever Robert...
There are definitely way better Malbecs in the 20s.
