This Malbec has a spray of Tannat and Petit Verdot helping it along. As you might guess, it's extremely dark with a powerful nose of black fruit, black tar and black pepper. A smoky quality shows up if you let sit for a bit. The palate shows much more smoothly than I expected. The tannins are firm, yet juicy. Very dark flavors dominate, with the oak showing well and a savory finish to remind you how good it was.

Inky. Full bodied. Very tasty. Great with risotto and ratatouille. RG

Nicely balanced with pronounced fruit. No complexity, though...

Fresh, lustfull, and over good! Pair with cheese for best results.
