Wine Review: This cranberry red colored Malbec is a good value. It opens with a fragrant red currant bouquet with hints of oak and red plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and displays bright acidity and fruit. Those fruits are red fruits, like red currant and red raspberry mixed in with mild minerality, gentle oak, and a touch of cherry-cola. The finish is dry and acidity and fruits linger and last for a little while. This wine is a good glass pour option as with will pair nicely with a tangy pulled pork sandwich, lamb kabobs or barbecue chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A beautiful reddish purple color. The vibrant nose is of red and black cherries and ripe plums that combine with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex. This is a fruit driven, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs great with meats like prosciutto or hard cheeses.
