Color of dark purple, different shades but almost inky. Nose of plenty of cherry, vanilla, spice, some berries, very fruity. Taste is smooth and silky, with refined tannins, jammy, minerals, some medicinal syrup note, spice, and ripe dark fruits. No edge and dense pack of flavors. Aftertaste of some more minty and bittersweet note. Very good indeed.

Good Malbec. Pretty dry with nice fruit on the nose. Drinkable now. Not complex, just bold, dry, full taste.

Jammy dark cherry and cotton candy on the nose with smokey oak. Cherry, plum, and eucalyptus notes. Nice tannins. Very good!

A bit of a disappointment. Not all that tasty or smooth.

Always willing to try Patagonian wines. This is decent & has some lift, not too “purplish” & went with rigatoni & homemade tomato sauce without blowing it away
