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.
Blueberry in the nose cannot overcome my aversion to over-ripe plum. By the time the tannins mellow out, the vintage will be well past its prime. Drink now!
