Very good fruit typical Malbec (pastry), also floral accents, full-bodied and concentrated, tight texture, long enough.

This is the slightly fresher, more floral, pretty side of malbec, though the palate is still full-bodied and plush to...

Elegant nose of blackberry, dark plums, raspberry, cinnamon, mint, cigar box, vanilla, violet, and a touch of smoke. There is a sense of sweetness from the ripe fruit character, but it remains fresh and balanced on the palate, with just a bit more oak influence showing (cocoa, smoke). Round and mouth filling, with medium-high acidity, and medium tannins. Medium finish. An excellent value wine to pair with barbecued ribs or burgers.

A simple easy drinking malbec. Pleasant ripe fruit with hints of herbs, but with little depth or complexity and a short finish. Ok quaffing wine, no more. Tasted Nov 2015.
