(2008) 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Sixteen months in new French oak. Adds a little more meat and game to the profile of similar glossy, deep, muscular fruit and silky, charry oak. It is a very international style that does not play to the Uco valley's strengths perhaps. A touch of black olive adds a nice suave touch, filling the mouth with mocha and spice and svelte black plum fruit. Spicy and concentrated, and very impressive of its style.
