Deep ruby purple. Showing youthful zest, but a very approachable Malbec. F***'ing nose (fruit, fig, funk, florals), followed by plum, anise, spice, orange pekoe tea and hoisin sauce on the palate. Medium to full bodied, with good structure through medium acidity and ripe tannins. Nice length. A solid Malbec.
May 2014.

Deep ruby to purple in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

The taste is full, juicy, delicious & all for under $20

Positives: This wine features light oak, blackberry, prunes, dates, licorice, mocha and mesquite. Full body with medium+ tannins, good acidity & a fairly long length.

Negatives: The nose is somewhat mute and watery

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with grilled lamb chops.

Tasted: 28 April 2014

It has a slightly off taste (maybe I don't like anise/licorice), which does fade a bit with time, but I don't think this wine is worth the money.
