A Malbec mixed with 12% Cabernet Franc from Los Chacayes that spent a year in used French barrels. Rich purple in the glass, this is all fresh plum at first, followed by blackberry, herbs and an enticing hint of mint that turns sweet in the mouth. Taut and light-footed, delivering good body, fresh flow and a lengthy finish. Seems to get skinnier as it goes along. A rewarding wine.
