Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Malbec opens with a red raspberry and black plum bouquet with hints of red cherry and subtle oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, smooth and savory. The flavor profile is plum with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of black raspberry, oak and black pepper. The finish is dry and its soft medium tannins linger nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Malbec with a Cuban sandwich or a gorgonzola burger. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A beautiful red and purple color. The vibrant nose is of red and black cherries and ripe plums that combine with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex. This is a fruit-driven, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs great with meats like prosciutto or hard cheeses.

Organic status: not organic

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.
