First off, absolutely loved this wine. I am a fan of Malbec, and this is exactly the perfect balance of rustic notes and fruit. Ripe dark fruit on the nose. Very sweet tannins and a lovely meaty finish. This is a great pairing wine. I'm off to find something to pair it with!
Perfect affordable wine with a expensive like nose strong scent
CC: toasty marshmallow nose, blackberries, and black pepper, with a little bit of cocoa. fruit-forward on the approach, strong body. vanilla on the finish. DP: pine needles, spiciness in the nose. very smooth body.
deep purples, juicy, black fruit aromas, some minerality with herbs, very pleasing on the palate
really like the fruits, really rich yet welcoming
Part of the Malbec Flight at Cru.The Cru review card: 'This Jammy red features dark cassis, blackberry preserves and plum sauce flavors that coat the palate, as spice, toasty oak, and licorice notes fill in the finish. This one just seemed to go better with what i had to eat, though all would work alone or with food.
Dry finish, pleasantly crisp and enjoyable. Definitive fruity lead-in with an excellent finish.
