Very ripe, mature and engaging malbec, with a unique savoury-licorice flavour, like dried fennel and cinnamon bark....

Jammy notes with no over bearing segments

Would buy again for sure, but, thought I paid $18 and I was in love. I think I see noe I paid $25. Feeling a bit like my my love afair is corrupt. This wine won my lusting under false pretenses

Lots of sugar diamonds on this synthetic cork. Pretty nice aromatics of cherry, dark plums, ripe berry jam, vanilla, smoky and savoury. The palate is smooth with luscious fruit, fresh acidity and soft tannins. The finish is medium length, velvety and slightly sweet. What this wine lacks in finesse is made up in sheer fruit power. The wine is marketed as extra-dry, I think its more closer to medium. I think most people will like this wine's easy drinking and crowd pleasing style. Be careful as you get closer to the bottom of the bottle, this Malbec had tons of sediments. I cannot remember the last time I saw so much sediment.
