85% Malbec, 10% Cab. Sauv., 3% Cab. Franc, 2% Merlot
Big extraction with nose of plums, violets, and ripe fruits. Powerful and intense classic Malbec black fruit, sweet, round, and persistent tannins.
Love it, very smooth and great flavor.
Lt. ruby color with an oaky, plum nose. Dry raspberry and tart cherry. Long tannic, light oah finish. A very pleasant wine with food.
Fantastic aroma and color. Full, bold taste that fills your mouth with sensations, then is sucked dry by a smooth finish. Great bold red, but would reserve for a big steak or other hearty red meat. I think it would overpower anything less. 14% ALC maybe a bit overboard, but it is balanced well enough. Well worth the price. Go for it.
