This is the first Bonarda / Malbec blend that I have had with more Bonarda in it than Malbec. So I am not sure if the results here are typical but this is a really great wine. It is inky purple wine with loads of dark fruit, tobacco and oak. The mouth feel is much more rounded and smooth than a typical Malbec blend but the muscle is still there. I was impressed.

"Deep reddish purple with aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit. Like swallowing a whole bowl of mixed ripe berries at once. Big body yet very balanced

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit and electric-purple color. Like swallowing a whole bowl of mixed ripe berries at once. Big body yet very balanced, with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together. Pairs well with grilled meats such as beef and pork, smoked ham, and even pizza with meat toppings. Incredibly fun to drink!
