What a great malbec!
Big cherry with some raspberry on the nose little baking spice. Big fruit forward of cherry and raspberry with a finish of chocolate. Also it sounds wierd but maybe some double bubble gum notes on the finish!?really through me off of the traditional malbec but really goodI!

Color of dark purple with some ruby hue. Nose is warm with plum, raisin, some wild flowers and earthy note. Taste of brave but polished tannins, chewy with good dark fruity and meaty note together, good acidity, some earthy rustic metallic note comes next. Also some tobacco leaves and a bit vanilla. Aftertaste follows similar flavors with some peppery feel, medium short. Nose fades away too quickly for me, but still offers good taste.

Tried another taste, not any better. Made from 40-year old vines in Cruz de Piedra, berry and spicy nose. Cherry and plum flavors with spice notes. Rugged tannins makes it difficult to enjoy. Needs a big food dish. Pass. Tasting Sample.
