It's love at first sip with this classic Mendoza Malbec! Intense aromas of red rose petals and red berry fruits fill the nose. Enjoy violet, berry, and mocha flavors on the palate with just a hint of blueberry. As these flavors evolve you'll be treated to a hint of chocolate on the finish. Superb to drink on its own, but perfect with steaks on the grill or even pizza and pasta. Don't miss this one though with your dark chocolate dessert!
"The 2008 Cocina Malbec spent 10 months in 20% new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it has a perfume of cedar, spice box, lavender, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium-bodied Malbec with an elegant personality. It has a silky texture, ripe flavors, good density and grip, and a lengthy finish. Drink it through 2016. "
The Wine Advocate
"Saturated ruby-red. The nose offers more lift than the Cocina blend: blackberry, spices, licorice and bitter chocolate. Then similarly lively and delineated on the palate, but with good volume as well to the flavors of dark berries and bitter chocolate. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. This new wine is made from a blend of lots."
