    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Ruby garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of nougat, mocha, mulberries, and sundried tomatoes with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, captivating, breezy finish with impressions of blueberry jam on toast, nuts, and caramel apple with light oak. A mellow, jammy malbec. Drink now through 2018.
