Rather big in body for the Malbecs I've had lately and it carries lots of heat. On the nose there's aromas of dusty minerality, cranberry, blackberry, mustard seed and a little barnyard / spoiled milk funk. There's flavors of blackberry, cranberry, seasoned tomato, black tea, and fresh plastic. It finishes oaky, spicy and tannic.

I find Malbec to be such a reliable varietal. I don’t recall having one that I really didn’t like no matter the price point. The nose on this is dark fruit, a hint of tobacco, and some old wood. The palate is well rounded with spice on the front, dark deep fruit in the middle, and rests with great tannin structure and earthy notes.

My kind of Malbec-excellent balance, emphasis on freshness, acidity, but the black fruit shines as well, alcohol completely in check. My go to wine shop thought this was their best malbec (out of many) & I agree

Dark plum color. Intense smells of cherries and blackberry. The taste isn’t as fruit sensitive as the smell. Fairy strong acidic taste and a nice, long finish.
