($80) Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, violet, licorice and mint on the nose. Succulent, chewy and deep, with a creaminess in the middle and intriguing smoke and mineral components. Less obviously sweet than the malbec under this label, and less showy today, but this broad, round wine has superb potential. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and terrific persistence. The Arizu family, which also owns Luigi Bosca, makes this limited bottling from a mutation of malbec (brote negro means black shoot) within a century-old vineyard.
