40% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, & 30% Merlot
A rich chocolaty aroma leads to deeply spiced flavors of dark
plum, kirsch and mocha. Creamy mid palate, with a finish that is filled with
notes of cocoa powder and raspberry. Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

David Bonomi says that he likes the “focus” of the cooler 2016
vintage and I think he’s right when the wines are as good as this cuvée of
Malbec with 30% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Dense, savoury and
serious, with subtle wood, chalky intensity and layers of herbal liquorice and
dark berry fruit. Superb.

Concentrated dark fruit and chocolate mousse flavors are framed
by firm tannins and acidity in this inky, muscular style. Sanguine notes fill
the finish, complemented by plenty of dried beef and savory accents. Needs a
good steak. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2023.
