Wine Review: This midnight black colored Malbec is very good. It opens with mild black licorice and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and slightly fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle blackberry with notes of boysenberry and mild oak. I also detected hints of blueberry, black licorice, and minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This rich Malbec would pair well with a veal chop. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Mai 2010 is astonishingly deep-red in color, with a bright ruby hue around the rim. On the nose, the wine shows multi-layered aromatic intensity that immediately engages the senses. Notes of plum, strawberry and blueberry mingle elegantly with rosemary, tobacco and cinnamon. The wine shows its wonderful structure, velvety tannins and length on the palate and can be laid down for up to 15 years, but it can also be enjoyed now. Decanting the wine at least 30 minutes before serving is highly recommended, so that the wine can breathe, reach its fullest expression and reveal its many delicious aromas and fruit flavors.
