Waterbrook Malbec 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet, spicy if a bit anonymous on the nose with green herbal, fennel seed notes and sweet toasted oak aromas. A bit light and fresh on entry with wild berry fruit and a touch of forest floor that adds a nice attractive contrast to the fruit. Not a big wine, but not smaller either, just medium bodied, fresh, if a bit simple, and very well balanced. Soft and easy drinking this loses a bit on the finish, with candied blackberry notes and a bit of harshness from the oak coming together briefly. Easy going and pleasant. 84pts
