Wine Review: The Gascon Malbec a very good starting point for those getting their feet wet with Malbec. The oak influence is almost non-existent but comes through as a nice velvety texture on the palate. The nose is ripe with berry fruits both red and blue and has plenty of violet notes as well. The palate lacks depth but the wine is still there and is easy to enjoy. Paired with a nice seared steak, the Gascon Malbec should shine. – Nicolay
Winemaker Notes: Opens with intense aromas of blackberry, plum and a hint of mocha. Dark fruit flavors intertwine with notes of spice, licorice and chocolate to create a magnificent, full-bodied Malbec. Round tannins and a plush mouthfeel lead the way to a long, velvety finish.
