Very full bodied and concentrated. Dark cherry Dr. Pepper kind of feel. Slightly bacony and cedary. Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Maybe needs a nice steak to go with it.
This is a very herbal wine. The finish is nice and smooth, slightly syrup-y, with hints of rubber and red fruit.
Very light aromas for a malbec with nice berry notes on the front and vegetal spice on the back. Balanced, versatile and a full feeling in the mouth leads to a perfectly long finish. Pair it with appetizers, steak, etc OR just drink it on its own and you will be set!
