The success of this combination is seen in the 2008 Terra Rosa, which is the darkest Terra Rosa we have produced to date; its core is so black it extends nearly to the edge of the glass. The combination of fruit from the two growing regions has yielded a wine that is both lush and focused, fruity and deep. In the mouth I find an inhiguing anise note beneath the typical dark plum fruit, which imparts a hint of spiciness. The finish is long and rich, but with a haunting lighhress in the aftertaste that is the hallmark of a good malbec. As always, Terra Rosa matches wonderfully with grilled meats, hearty pizzas and pastas, and other flavorful foods.
"Good full ruby-red. Complex aromas of game, spices, pepper, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. Lush, rich and sweet, with malbec-typical flavors of blackberry and licorice. Broad and plush but with spine. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Serious malbec for the price!"
