A blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Malbec that delivers blackberry, black currant, herbs, cocoa, blueberry, and toasty oak aromas of medium-high intensity. It is medium-full bodied and textured nice aroma replays. Very good acidity and textured tannins that are a touch grippy. Very good finish length. Tasted July/2019.
