The nose is uneventful at opening, and what scents present themselves are gone like the wind in no time at all. After a time in the glass, however, wood notes appear, both cedar and oak, then florals, fruits, spices and greens emerge, including lavender, plum, raspberry, wild dewberry, blueberry, cinnamon, anise, fresh green grass, and rose. The palate follows a similar track, evolving to greater complexity and becoming more flavorful several sips in. Big tannins provide the framework for this evolution, as bright notes of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry emerge to provide a strong opening medley that plays throughout. Fruit harmonies are decorated by herbs and spices, including coffee grinds, chocolate, earth, cedar, tobacco, anise, licorice and pepper, leading to a pleasant, gentle, smooth finish. A tangy, citrus-based acidity adds zest.

I'm huge a Malbec fan and I was disappointed with this one. The wine was too dry and bitter with an overabundance of tannins. If you're looking for a better Malbec I suggest you try Tapiz.
