A blend of 60% Malbec with 20% Bonarda and 20% Syrah(shiraz). The colour is purple, not red. Aromas of dark fruit; blackberry and black cherry. Very dry in the mouth with pronounced cherry and currant. The Syrah provides a touch of spice on the finish as well which is nice. Perhaps too dry and tannic straight out of the bottle for some people, I suggest that you decant this an hour or two before serving; it softens nicely with some air. (Northof9finewine, April 2011)

Aromas of spices and dark wildberries. Medium body with firm tannins. Needs food. Not quite ready but should smoothen with time - Put away for 2 to 5 years.
