Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored wine finished in 6th place in our recent blind tasting of Malbecs. It opens with a light blueberry bouquet with a hint of spice and oak. On the palate this wine is medium bodied, displays nicely integrated acidity, and is packed with juicy red raspberry fruit. The finish is dry and has nicely prolonged tannins. The panel felt this wine would pair well with pork chops with a fig sauce or lamb stew. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Bright violet color with shades of ebony. Has an aroma of ripe plums, cherries and spice. Tastes like ripe red berries, with balanced acidity, and sweet tannins leading to a deliciously long finish.
