Dark red violet in color, this elegant Malbec has a mysterious first impression with floral aromas such as violets followed by olives, ink, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, figs and, finally, notes of chocolate and a touch of fresh mushrooms.
The expression on the palate is round with soft and velvety tannins. Well balanced, both concentrated and juicy, influenced by the acidic berries. There is a presence of graphite and mineral notes, together with a long, complex finish.
"The 2009 Orzada Malbec contains 10% Syrah in its makeup and spent 15 months in 79% new French and American oak. Hints of game, balsamic, cherry cola, and assorted black fruits set the stage for a spicy, plush, full-bodied wine that deftly conceals enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for another 2-3 years. Drink this outstanding value from 2013 to 2021."
