Wine Review: This Malbec based wine from Zuccardi is very good. It is opaque and ruby red colored. It opens with a Bing cherry bouquet with hints of black raspberry liquor. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black cherry with notes of boysenberry and hints of oak and a touch of black licorice. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins show very nice length. This wine will benefit from some time in the cellar. In the near term, I would decant it and serve it with beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken
