Wine Review: This dark red colored Malbec from Argentina opens with a cranberry bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a soft mild red plum with notes of pomegranate and oak. I also detected a mild streak of minerality throughout. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins show some length. This Malbec is a very good everyday wine. You can pair it with meat lasagna. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark violet with blue hues. Nose of ripe red and black fruits such as cherries, plums, and blackberries. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and snuff. Medium-bodied flavor, with soft tannins and balanced acidity with a fruity and spicy finish.

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.
