Deep purple in color with a short purple/ reddish rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, sweet plums, cherries, black currants, oak, cola, tobacco, licorice, vanilla, leather, pencil lead, chocolates, coffee, spices, vinaigrette, beef jerky and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, raspberries, earth, light vegetables, dark chocolates, graphite, bitter herbs, earth, spices, black olives, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina. Not fully balanced, but showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Good by itself and better with food. Spicy with a tangy finish. Much softer as a 4 year old than before.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly, and remove some of the acidity.

Aged for 15 months in Oak barrels.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$22.

OK Malbec for the price but may be OK to try a different one if you've got a selection

Deep purple/ inky in color with a very short purplish rim.

Great fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, cedar, chocolates, tobacco, green vegetables, graphite, herbs, tar, leather, earth, cloves and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, earth, leather, tobacco leaf, light vegetables, coffee, chocolates, bell pepper, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins and spices.

This is a nice surprise. This Argentinian Malbec is drinking very nicely now, without too many green notes. Smooth and spicy mouthfeel with enough tannins to make it interesting. Showing nice complexity and balance.

Would be better in a few years, with better complexity.
Decanting is a must here. 2 hours at the least. Please have patience.

Good enough to drink by itself, but can pair well with BBQ Meats.

This was the better of the two Malbecs we had during our tasting evening but was still just a little light for my taste. It drank just a little thin for a Malbec but the flavor was quite nice. Might be good slightly chilled? I have others I may go back to but fun to try nonetheless.
