This red combines malbec with syrah, cabernet sauvignon and bonarda. It comes across with a cheerful, almost confected quality suggesting blueberry and wine gums. But beneath the candy-store fruit are intriguing hints of spice and mineral. The 15-per-cent alcohol becomes noticeable on the finish. Pair it with grilled red meats.
