A tight lil' Malbec that needs a decantin. Deep ruby with a violet hue and some thickness in the glass. The nose is savoury, toasty and pruney all at once. Dried purple plum, reduced soya sauce, charcoal and rosemary aromas emerge after some coaxing. The mouth is fullish, has a stewed fruit sweetness, pleasant tannin and expected citric acid - acidity. In all, fairly compact yet big enough and easy enough to put back. Sticky ribs, pulled pork, or mole dishes. Drink over next 2 years. Tasted Dec '13
