thin and cheep smelling but way better than a lot of other $10 bottles of wine. It actually opens up quite nice and drinks well.

Medium minus ruby with a touch of purple in colour and a medium to medium+ intensity in the nose.
Positives: This is a lighter style of Malbec. Notes of cedar, blackberry, plums, mulberry, raspberry, fried peameal, tobacco leaves, anise, cassis, spinach leaves & a touch of spice. Medium body with medium+ tannins, good acidity, medium+ length & the alcohol is well integrated.
Negatives: Touch too green.
A somewhat complex wine that is difficult to find at this price.
This has a screw cap
I like the classic label, looks more expensive than it really is.
Drink now or over the next 2-3 years. Pair it with veal sandwich or drink on its own.
