This wine opens with refined notes of raspberry, white tea leaves, a hint of fresh mint and lavender. The flavors are layered with milk chocolate fig reduction, dark plum and licorice root, and the texture is angular, yet sophisticated, with chocolate ganache details in the finish. Blend: 52% Malbec, 48% Cabernet Franc.
"Aromas of ripe dark and purple fruit with vanilla, licorice, mocha and pine wood. Its big and wide on the palate with plush, velvet-like tannins. Very textural, with a dusty and velvety mouth-feel and a lingering finish. Attractive fruit underneath. 52% cabernet sauvignon and 48% malbec. Drink or hold." James Suckling, 93 Points
