Wine Enthusiast Review
A dark, dense color and bold berry aromas laced with tight-grained oak notes and related vanilla, spice and cinnamon accents are quite the draw. This full-flavored Malbec is medium in depth and driven by ripe fruit and wiry acidity. Blackberry, cassis and creamy, almost fatty oak flavors finish with medium length. Drink now through 2024.
This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible color - could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well (and not talk back when you don't give it the car keys!). Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.
