The purple-colored 2008 Malbec Blend contains 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Bonarda. The wine was aged in French and American oak. It offers up a nose of cedar, black cherry, and plum leading to a dense wine with plenty of savory black fruit flavor, a forward personality, and good length. RP
minerally, even salty. muted berries much like French reds. understated though ripe fruit. young yes, but velvety finish.
little too dry for me....taking it back.
