This purplish red wine boasts aromas of plums and ripe red fruits. Soft and velvety on the palate with lush fruit flavors. Best enjoyed with chesses, spicy dishes and red meats.

Nose is almost rustic, with good earthy character, ripe black fruits, and black pepper. On the palate you get muted blackberry, black raspberry, black pepper,and earth. Acidity and tannins are both appropriately medium intensity, providing good backbone. Can a wine be clean and dirty? Yes it can, as this wine proves it. It has that dirty earth character yet is well-made, well-balanced, and the fruit comes through cleanly. The finish is more old world, mostly earth, black pepper, and some black fruit. It reminds me more of Cot and traditional Argentine Malbec than the over-saturated, Jammy Malbecs that have been flooding the market recently ,(which to me is a breath of fresh air). Not everything has to taste like Australian Shiraz or over-the-top California Zin.
