Bright, dark ruby. Perfumed, slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, licorice, wild herbs and black pepper. Dense, brooding black fruit and licorice flavors show good peppery lift and energy without going green. This wine stands out for its mineral and violet verve and its definition of flavor, and possesses the spine to evolve slowly. These Bodegas Fabre wines are all quite suave and well-made, and this 2016 Malbec is another superb example of its cooler vintage.
