A heady nose of peppermint, chocolate, black currant and berries. Rich, savory and sweet with some notable acidity. Flavourful, full-bodied and certainly a crowd-pleaser. Tannins are still somewhat gritty. Score: 89 (Sara d'Amato, WineAlign.com, Jun 2013)

Deep dark ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Plain Jane Malbec that will appeal to those that like their reds on the sweet side.

Notes: Prunes, blackberry, maraschino cherry in milk chocolate and blueberry pie. Medium+ body with low tannins and acidity with an average length.

Negatives: None

Drink now on its own or pair with sweet & spicy BBQ pork chops.
