Solid bold fruit forward Malbec/Syrah. Should give it more for being organic.

Docked points for the insanely heavy "mine is bigger than yours" bottle. The wine is...fine. Oak sticks out a bit awkwardly.

I have a terrible cold so I feel like I'm drinking delicious water. There's a vaguely saline note, I swear I smelled cinnamon, and there's a super peppery aftertaste.

Is great to have Ernestos’ wines in the Cayman Islands, a real blessing

Took some time to air out and breathe but we really enjoyed it with pomegranate sesame chicken dinner. The bold wine really held its ground against strong dinner flavor profiles.
