Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Opaque, almost black in color. This wine is filled with sour cherry, anise, cocoa powder, raspberry and cinnamon. Dry and very tannic, the fruit is laying patiently underneath waiting to come to the fore. This one will reward serious cellar time. Give it four years and then keep looking at it for another six after that. My note: This wine is a blend of 15% Merlot, 80% Malbec and 5% Tannat. Lip-smacking delicious with aromas of black cherry, fig, red currant, coffee and cigar box. Terrific acidity for food. It’s full-bodied but not heavy.

Merlot Malbec Tannat food pairings: hard cheeses, roast meats, chili dog, cheeseburgers, meatballs.
