The 2018 'Blacktail' is a fantastic blend of 27% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 23% Petite Sirah and 4% Petit Verdot. It instantly opens expressive aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants and dark cherries, which are woven together with mocha, freshly tilled soil, baking spices and a dusty mineral character that all develop beautifully in the glass. The palate if full-bodied and voluptuous, with nicely polished tannins. It continues to impress with its remarkable depth and concentration, giving way to layers of dark berries, black cherries spices and earthy mineral flavors that resonate throughout and leave a lasting impression. This is a stunning wine from the team at Cervantes that is already showing incredibally well.
