This is deeply coloured, quite intense but coarse young malbec with an odd nose of black tea, hummus and mulberry...

Big, fat malbec. Dark, thick and sweet. Black fruit, vegetable stock and alcohol on the nose. Full bodied. Tastes of blackberry/blackcurrant jam, chocolate, some oaky vanilla and a slightly green sourness. Tannin is moderate and sweet. Heady at 14.5%. Long, warm finish.

A sweet, plush, fruit forward wine that might appeal to commercial-style merlot drinkers.

I'd rather grab a Misterio for half the price.
