Hard at work...this is fleshy and ripe but has a hit of green. Wonder if they gave it a tad of stem inclusion. Ripe and dried red fruit—something pruney going on. Not my favorite but I never get Malbec in blind tastings so attempting to learn. This is just a big mouthful of dried fruit served in a woodshop. Gives me flashbacks to when my granddaddy once made wine and the adults were trying it (I was maybe seven) and my uncle snuck to pour his out in the big sink in the garage near where granddaddy kept his woodworking stuff. The uncle turned out to be a ass so I’ve no idea if the wine was good but I drink this and...The smell of wood and wine...

Nice and fruity with a heavy steak which I don’t normally like but was nice for summer.

It’s a little acidic for my taste but has a good deep fruit flavor

Blackberry, plum, spice, nice balance, medium body and with nice tannins. Easy tannic finish lingers. A marvelous value wine.

Smooth. Nice glass on it's own. Didn't try it with a meal but it would be good with hearty soups. Tasty with white cheddar and dark chocolate.
