An Argentinian wine with a distinctly French feel (from Michel Rolland), the Malbec is front and center, as this is lush and approachable, dense and sweet, with lovely dark fruit, mostly blackberry, blueberry, and prune. But the intrigue comes from the other 43%, and especially from the non-Bordeaux Syrah (9%), with meaty and mildly spicy notes adding a savoury element to the mix and nicely complementing the Bordelais fruit. Well-structured, with a creamy texture and vibrant acidity, it's bit too lean and bitter on the palate, and the length could be better, but it's still elegant overall.
