Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Malbec opens with a dark chocolate and berry bouquet with some floral hints. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is mild mineral infused dark cherry with notes of cocoa and hints of black coffee towards the end. The finish is dry and its sticky moderate tannins linger for quite some time. This Malbec would pair nicely with a grilled lamb burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes —a clear expression of a cool year—intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety's great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers. Perfect to be matched with all kinds of meats; foods with spicy sauces, soft and creamy cheeses and sweet desserts.
