    21% Malbec; 3% Petit Verdot; 1% Cabernet Franc. Although its formidable price tag carries the promise of something special, this bottling disappoints with comparatively thin, slightly herbal aromas and ripe, but somewhat too shallow flavors that fail to convince with respect to varietal fruit. Blunted at the finish by excessive heat and toughness, the wine is at best a long shot for positive growth.
