When last noted in 2010, I opined that it was "Very drinkable now but should improve for at least a few more years." In the intervening three years, it has definitely improved. The tough tannins that long dominated this wine have softened considerably (as reflected by the substantial amount of sediment it has thrown). Even so, I suspect it will continue to imrpove for at least a few more years.
On the nose and palate, the associations suggested by this Malbec-based blend include cola, plums, blackberries, anise, nutmeg, and tobacco.
Yummy with a flat iron steak with chimichurri sauce.
