Light, transparent, not inky like many other Malbecs. Retains dark fruit and subtle oak. Hot.

Chakana is great. This one is a Malbec, not a blend. Worth every penny.

Very inviting purple hue in the glass with rich red berries and spice on the nose. Chewy tannins and a long finish.

Dark ruby. Pickled cukes, red blossom on nose. Dill attack goes towards garrigue, with ripe sweet red cherry. Nice/nice

Very good Malbec. After breeze for a little bit, rich palate of dark fruit and chocolate, with a very smooth end. Just love it!

Excellent and bountiful flavor and perhaps the best Malbec ever tasted.
