Suggested to me a a local wine shop. Nice blend of fruits and spice. Not as bold as I expect with a Malbec.

Nose of black pepper, blackberry, moist leaf and pine needles. Tannins are fading, but still present. Acidity is still punchy. Pint needles really carry forward in the palate, followed by crack black pepper and black fruit. Best on 2nd day.

Jammy, spices. 2 days in a row no nap. I don't give a rip what it tastes like.

2013. Chocolate covered cherries on the nose. Not strong aroma. Medium tannins. Thin body like a Pinot noir. Pre food had some spice and decent oak. Had it with a vegetarian chili and the red fruits opened. Smooth mouth feel. Decent, but Forgettable. IMO Not worth the $

Was hoping for it to be a bit bolder, but not bad. Wouldn't pay that for it again but but a bad try.
