Excellent BBQ wine. Nothing fancy but smooth and fruity. Impressed at this price point.

An excellent Malbec. Rounded velvet on the tongue, dark fruit and berries with light oak tannins in the finish.

Smooth right from opening. Dry but with a nice fruit body. Hint of oak & vanilla finish. Lingers warm and nicely on the tongue. Very good for the price.
