The Okanagan is not known for Malbec, but that's what Inniskillin's Discovery Series is about - less typical offerings. This one kinda works with both red and dark fruit, minty herbs, and cedar. The body is medium with restrained alcohol, the structure is firm with medium plus acidity and still young sticky tannins that soften with air. The palate transitions from initially sweet to savoury. Worth a try if you come across it, but not a multi-bottle purchase at this price. Aug. 2015.
