Clear garnet color of deep intensity Nose was pronounced... with fruit, floral, spices and damp forest floor.. Palate was medium to medium high acid and medium plus bodied.. Flavors were pronouced fruit, floral, spice and wood... long... Fruit components were raspberry and red cherry... Floral perfume of woody cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and white pepper.. Hebaceous notes of wet leaves, black currant leaf and tannins were structured. Excellent
My wife was making chili so I was looking for something hardy to go along, but did not want to mail it in and go the Zinfandel route, so I grabbed this. I am glad I had a taste of it before eating--inky and brooding with cassis, blackberry, and a bit of earth. On the palate, a bit stewed, but otherwise a well-rounded, solid example of Malbec. As for the chili? Whoa, it was so spicy that the wine was not even an option. Yes, my wife has been properly chastised....thedrunkencyclist.com
An attractive, semi-opaque magenta in color, lightening quite a bit at the edge. Very pretty, subtle aromas of dark fruits, earth, spice and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied and rich, with a plush mouth feel. Features plenty of juicy blackberry and plum fruit character plus a moderate acidity which keeps this lively. A subtle note of violets and a stony minerality linger on the long, smooth finish. Very polished and enjoyable. 91+ 50+5+12+16+8=91
