Wine Review: We did a mini tasting of value priced Malbecs and this was one of the wines we recommended. This very bright cherry red colored wine. It opens with a light cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and soft with no hard edges. The flavor profile is a light black cherry with hints of vanilla and light oak. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. We felt this wine would serve well as a pleasant introduction into red wine and particularly Malbec. It is also a nice bargain and would go well with pizza or Spanish rice. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep red violet color. It’s a spicy wine with a touch of dried herbs that are well combined with mature fruits as dry plums and black cherries. It has great balance, structure, and concentration and presents delicate mint notes of pleasant and persistent finish.
