"Bright medium red-ruby. Brambly blackberry, dark raspberry, black pepper, mocha and minerals on the nose, plus a touch of reduction. Then rich, broad and almost chocolatey on the palate, offering a fine-grained texture and very good concentration to its sweet, juicy dark berry, pepper and spice flavors. Harmonious acidity and salty minerality give this wine early deliciousness but there's no rush to drink it. Finishes with a broad, fine dusting of tannins and a lingering note of cocoa powder. Malbec and Syrah are hardly a typical blend but I like the results here. A stunning bargain!"
