Wine Review: This light strawberry colored Malbec and Syrah blend has a pleasant bouquet of light berries including strawberries and hints of minerality. The bouquet carries through to the palate, that is medium bodied, slightly dry and includes flavors of strawberry, light pink grapefruit and hints of oak. The combination of Malbec and Syrah in this Argentinian Rose are integrated nicely. It closes with a nice dry extended finish that has soft tannins. I would pair this very pleasant Rose with grilled scallops. - Joe

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
