Top Notes For
Bacon Bourbon

A nice Malbec, especially for under twenty bucks. A bit weak on the nose with some blackberry, currant and spice notes. First taste is surprisingly lush with a lot of fruit. Some acidity and a short finish with a hint of tannin.

Gave this guy about 3 hours to breath from the bottle before I tried it. Loads of crushed violet on the nose. The pallet was lush and full of ripe plum notes. The acidity was quite low with a hint of tannin on the finish. A good wine for just sitting at the computer all day. A great red for under $20CAD.

Кожа, дерево, кора. Мощно, тяжело, алкогольно. Мятые спелые ягоды, но не сладкие. Шоколадка, почти шелковые танины. 16.

I'm new to Malbec but this has many Cabernet Sauvignon properties. For under $20 a lovely international drop.

2012 Vintage. Deep inky purple with aromas of mocha and plum. Elegant and plush on the palate with lots of crunchy fruit and rich texture. A great bargain

Blackberry, currant, subtle oak on the nose. Well structured with nicely integrated tannins and a smooth finish to this purple Malbec. Quite nice indeed.

Good stuff. Holds up to the chili cook-off at which it was served.
