(60% cabernet sauvignon, 20% malbec and 2% cabernet franc): Bright full ruby-red. Black fruits, violet, minerals and exotic oak on the nose. Painfully clenched and imploded today, with precise black fruit and violet flavors complicated by saline, mineral and oak notes. Dominated by its serious tannic structure. Finishes with a coconutty oak character. With several top vineyards, dates of harvest and different varieties vinified separately, winemaker Vigil estimates that this blend was made from 500 lots of wine! Should make a great bottle but I wouldn't go near this for at least five more years.
