Wine Review: This reasonably priced everyday Malbec shows well every vintage. This year it is dark ruby colored and opens with a mild black cherry and cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of black raspberry and light old oak. The finish is dry and its very mild tannins are subtle. This would be a Very Good choice at your favorite pub with a juicy Angus burger smothered with Swiss and sautéed mushrooms. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep purple red colour, with bright hues. Nose of crushed cherries, raspberries, and dried violet petals, hints of nutmeg. Powerful mouth feel, ample and structured, sustained, long finish.
