Crisp and juicy redcurrant, orange and floral flavored fruit, that is well focused and ashows a little bitter tannin on the back.

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Sweet nose of cherries, blueberries, wood, earth, light vegetables, vanilla, spices, chocolates, smoke, peppermint, light coffee and black pepper.

Full bodied but not bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, licorice, spices, cloves, animal notes, vinaigrette, bitter herbs, almonds, thyme and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Argentinian Malbec, from the Uco Valley in Mendoza, is well balanced with mild complexity. An above average Argentinian Malbec. Smooth with a chewy mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. Needs 20 minutes of airtime to open up properly and show some tannins.

Would pair nicely with BBQ Meats and lamb.

14% alcohol by volume.


$15.
