Trapiche Syrah Oak Cask 2009
This was an interesting Malbec, surprisingly light and very easy to drink on the porch after dinner. The flavors are not intense in your mouth
I would pass on this one. It has a green character to it that flaws it. At this price point I would go with a Terrazas any day over this.
Smooth and delightful blackberry jam, but not overly sweet or over powering. Great social wine after skiing or before dinner.
Two and a half glasses
