Cocoa, dark berries, dusty tannins, good acidity and a little pepper. Really nice after a couple days.

Good blend, yet somewhat sharp at the end of the drink. Slight strong aroma at beginning when following a straight Malbec

Before knowing what the percentages were [70% malbec and 30% cab] I called this malbec dominant, as the nose and the palate just scream the Argentinian grape. Shoe leather, licorice, dark, muddled fruits abound on the nose while the palate offers up slightly brighter, more tart flavors with loads of black tea tannins and big alcohol. Perhaps this wine will go better with food and I'm wrong for just drinking it after work, but I'm just not that impressed.

A really good value Cab-Malbec. Dark fruit, plum skins, cedar and spice.

Very solid malbec - cab mix. Deep, ruby red. Red fruit and blackcurrant in the nose, hints of leather or tobacco. Smooth but noticeable tannins, looong finish. Not jammy and not plummy, but not mineral like a lot of Uco malbecs. The kind of wine that you bring to your friends' for steak and everyone loves it.

Costco buy. Loved the floral notes from the Malbec. I would definitely buy this blend again.
