Intense dark fruits, blackberry & plum. Quite rounded tannins and a little bit of smoke.

Spicy wine this one with a peppery nose mixed with a smoky flavor. This would go really well with a big red meat!

Medium nose, so very smooth it isn't even funny. Glad I have two bottles. Oaky with hints of plum. OMG!

Actually grabbed this from wine fridge to use in a Spanish meatball sauce recipe. Poured a quick glass to try and it’s delicious! Not as smooth and rounded as other Malbecs I’ve had, but very nice. Berries with a peppery note. Husband was also smoking/grilling a bison steak and it was very good with that.

This got better the longer it was open. Lots of dark berry flavors, medium tannins
