very dark, prune colour; sharp,light rim; thick and shiny. nose: rather delicate and onedimensional - cherries and blackberries with powder ending. taste: medium bodied with fruity, strong flavour; some dark chocolate and cherries from liqueur; quite smooth but lacks finesse when alcohol taking over. Good to grilled beef.
Giant Wine Sale & Tasting 8/11/2012 (Cellar on Greene, Columbia, SC): The nose is pretty closed, but swirling almost immediately brings things to life. This is a competent, easily approachable, fruity, medium bodied mouth full of flavor. Typical Mendoza dark color. Ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit with a spicy back ground. Moderate tannins. Very young and still coming together, more swirling, and drinking down the glass helps open up the red and black fruit. A hint of vanilla, with some wet forest floor in the background. Pretty rich mouth feel for a Malbec. Black fruit, with a little leather on the finish.
