Malbec gets top billing here (at 60 per cent of the blend), joined by cabernet sauvignon and syrah. Exceedingly ripe and syrupy-thick in a way that calls to mind California zinfandel, it shows notes of prune and raisin anchored by spice and toasty oak. The tannins are fine and well-integrated. Barbecued ribs would make a fine pairing.
