2011 Barrel Reserve Malbec
Garnet black color. Fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of berry creme brulee, spiced toffee, toasted sandalwood, and mixed peppercorns and olives with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a polished, complex, long beets, slate, and cashews finish with silky, fine tannins. A elegant, sensuous, finely balanced malbec with great subtlety and depth.
