Wine Review: This pitch black colored Malbec from Mendoza opens up with a ripe blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle blackberry and oak blend with hints of blueberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Malbec would be perfect with a barbecue burger. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: A beautiful red and purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense, dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. Don’t be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose’s way of telling you that it wants its fair share! This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. It goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pizza and mild cheeses.
