A bit sweet, with great fruit flavors, but with balanced tannins and acidity as well.
Strong blackberry fruit flavor. Lots of tannins and oak.
Musty winery nose. Crushed blackberries and flinty licorice.
One and a half glasses
External Reviews for Ruta 22 Malbec
Stout and dense from the beginning, with blackberry and violet aromas. Despite being a bold and dark Malbec, this is fresh and composed, with sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Good on the finish, with candied fruit and caramel sweetness.
Elegant yet focused, with a solid core of raspberry and crushed plum fruit framed by grilled herbs, spice and a fine minerality that carries the stony finish. An all-season red. Drink now.
