Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
The nose of the 2014 Iscay Malbec Cabernet Franc shows some toasty and smoky aromas, and there are some dusty tannins, perhaps reflecting a bygone era when reds saw more extraction and new oak. This blend of 70% Malbec with 30% Cabernet Franc matured in brand-new oak barriques for 12 months, and the oak seems to have marked the wine quite heavily. 24,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2018.
Wonderfully complex aromas of tobacco flowers, violets, blueberries and black olives. Full-bodied, dense and very polished with fine, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. The tannins are right and solid. This needs two or three years to soften, but shows great promise, as always. Drink after 2022.
