Balbo Malbec 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful deep violet. Exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and violets. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and a hint of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, and mint on the finish. Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to chicken. Brava Susana, yet again! *This is what Malbec is all about.*

Pale red. Strawberry on the nose, lifted by a citrus element. Supple and moderately sweet, with a plump texture but attractive sugar/acid balance to the dominant strawberry flavor. Easygoing, seamless rose with very good fruit, made via the saignee method

This dark, dense red offers concentrated notes of wild berry compote, fig paste and plum skin framed by hints of spice, violet and graphite on the finish. Drink now.

The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of fresh crushed cherries and toasty/smoky oak-just enough to frame the exuberant fruit. On the palate, the flavors of cherries and spice are obvious, and the jammy fruit quality just keeps coming on strong, with hints of spice lurking in the background. This is a wine that you'll want to buy by the case because it can be consumed at almost any occasion, whether at a fancy dinner party, or just curled up on the couch in front of a movie. Fun and delicious-what more can you ask for?! - Winery

Der Wein aus Malbec und Cabernet Sauvignon zeigt eine tiefe purpurrote Farbe mit dunklen Reflexen, Himbeer, Cassis und Kirschen-Aromen in der Nase. Angenehme, getoastete Vanille, schwarzer Pfeffer und Tabak-Note. Viele saftige, wunderbar strukturierte und weiche Tannine, lang anhaltender Abgang.
