Pork was invented so that when this wine came along it would it would be at its tastiest! Bacon, lettuce, and tomato for lunch; ham for Easter dinner, or pork spare ribs anytime all make ideal pairings for this fairly sweet Malbec.
First, you'll have to like a very sweet red wine to enjoy this offering. If I owned the vineyard, I would figure out a way to make a Port style fortified product using this as part of the base. That said, it has a certain appeal in the right setting. It would go well with a sweet, chocolate dessert.
Light and fruity on the nose, even a little tutti frutti, and certainly pleasant. A hint of tar on the palette on first blush, leading to more fruit: strawberry jam and blueberry followed by berries. I can see where some might be a bit surprised at the finish with heavier tannins than one might expect. The bottle I tasted was very fresh with ample tannins to hold up for two, even three more years. I can see how some might not like this, especially those not expecting tannins than will settle and become finer over time.
