Immediately upon sniffing the wine I thought “cedar chest.” I also found crushed flowers, pencil lead, spice, raspberry, fig, forest floor, anise, cinnamon, and herbs. This nose seemed totally different from any Malbec I’ve ever had before. In the mouth I got cedar, blackberry, anise, raspberry, blackberry, dusty tannins, and pencil lead. The mouth almost felt reserved in a way to me, and it definitely had tannins to spare.
