Bodegas O. Fournier, Mendoza
B Crux Blend, 2012
Varietals: Malbec 45%, Tempranillo 30%, Syrah 15% & Merlot 10%
Region: Uco Valley
A fresher version compared to the B Crux blends of the past but the concentration and the oak is still available, even if it's less prominent that in previous vintages. There are some smoky aromas reminiscent of roasted sesame seeds over a core of ripe plums and sweet spices. There are abundant, fine-grained tannins, ripe fruit and a dry finish.
