Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Argentinian Malbec based blend opens with a fragrant red raspberry and red plum blend. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry hints of oak, faint minerality and plum. The finish is dry and its mild tannins fade away nicely. This wine is a very nice burger wine to quaff at your summer parties. It will be a crowd pleaser as it goes down easy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A complex nose with a bouquet of plums, cherries, and jam, expressing both spicy and vanilla notes; it blends wonderfully with the blueberry and violet aromas of the Cabernet Franc. In the mouth, the Cabernet Franc adds dark fruit and spices to the velvet tannins and rich Malbec flavor, making a perfect combination that results in a complex, elegant wine of great concentration.

Organic status: not organic
