Ricardo Santos Malbec 2002
The 2002 Malbec is a striking deep brilliant purple color. The nose is ripe and full, reminiscent of dark cherries, plums, and chocolate with undertones of loam and earth. In the mouth, the wine displays a profound core of ripe, blackberry jam fruit, lengthening into a sophisticated weighty finish coupled with an elegant silkness. This is a rich, extracted Malbec, atypical of most Malbecs from Argentina.
