I must admit that I am trying this wine while on malbec kick. That said I like this wine. Dark fruit, coco and earthiness on the nose. Plum, minty and earthiness, smooth tannins and a long finish. Yummy wine, great with a skirt steak.
A joy to drink. Very Fresh with balanced fruit with light to medium tannins. Brilliant color. A finish that was medium.

Juicy and mouth-filling, this wine bursts with bright raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and café au lait. Big, chewy tannins surround a complex core of black fruit and hints of tasty oak that last throughout a long finish.
