Icono Blend 2015 750ml

Evidence of very skillful blending, this balanced, nuanced cuvée is Malbec based with 50% of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot from Paraje Altamira, Perdriel and Vista Flores. Beautifully refined, with well-integrated new oak, savory tannins, and fresh, tangy fruit.

CRITIC'S NOTES

There’s a lot to like in this nicely built blend with a palate that treads the line of ripeness, but holds quite long and delivers plenty of suave, ripe dark fruit. A blend of 50 per cent malbec, 30 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 15 per cent cabernet franc and five per cent petit verdot. Drink or hold.
