Nice expression of Malbec here. Lots of black pepper, dark fruit, cinnamon, blueberry and rich dark chocolate. This is a wine that loves food, particularly grilled meats.

The wine itself has a deep purple color and nice clarity in the glass. The nose is classic Malbec, rich ripe red fruit, blackberries, cherries and plums, offset with distinct earthy tones of green grass, forest floor and some dusty granite. The taste is quite remarkable, with some dark fruit up front, followed by some lovely spice notes midpalate, anise, mint and leather. The finish is wonderful, as the firm tannins and balanced acidity provide ample support for the velvety mouthfeel and long, dry finish.

Soft and earthy up front, this Malbec deals jammy, raisiny aromas and a note of charcoal. The palate is cushioned in feel, while flavors of prune and blackberry are ripe but also minerally. Blackberry and raisin flavors are at the center of a lightly herbal, persistent finish.

The 2011 Malbec underwent the same vinification as the 2010. There is a bit of sulphur on the nose, and the fruit feels a little diffuse underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins for an entry level wine and it has an attractive meatiness towards the finish. Drink now–2014.
