Wine Review: This pitch black colored Malbec is very good. It opens with a fragrant blueberry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and rich. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe and extracted blueberry with notes of oak. I also detected hints of blackberry and minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite some time. I would pair this rich Malbec with pan roasted duck breast with fig. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An intense violet color, LTU 2009 is complex with concentrated and balanced aromas of toasted fig, blueberry, black currant and tobacco and notes of bittersweet cocoa. The palate is reach and fruity with a long, elegant finish.
