Distinctly raisiny flavor and tipping toward sweet, like a light strawberry jam. Kind of grows on you--I'm not too familiar with Malbec & it's just plain different from the "fatter" wines I'm used to. Decided not to buy a case but don't regret the bottle. Look fwd to trying more from this region.
Great nose, suggestive of candy, chocolate and jam. Medium-light body, less chewy than other malbecs. The flavor leaves what to be desired. I find it much to astringent; slightly tannic, with flavor of baked apple and seltzer, with lingering noisy aftertaste.
