A tight and linear malbec with firm and silky tannins and wonderful freshness. Full-to medium-bodied, focused and long with an energetic finish. I really enjoy the compressed nature of this.
Floral, savory and earthy nuances add complexity to a core of expressive Malbec fruit. Dark raspberry, pomegranate, mint, blood orange and gravel are some of the many notes that run through this classy, substantial red from Chateau St. Jean.
...gives up notes of crushed black cherries, black raspberries and red plums with touches of pencil lead, violets, baking spices and cedar. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and a lively line lifting the perfumed fruit to a long finish.
