Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Malbec opens with black raspberry, mild old and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft and very easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle blackberry with notes of boysenberry and delicate hints of oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a little sticky and linger. This would be a good burger wine at a pub. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark violet and brilliant purple colour. Good complexity in the nose with typical Malbec aromas of ripe fruits such as figs, plums, blackberries, and marmalades. Notes of vanilla, tobacco, coffee, and chocolate. Full bodied red wine with sweet tannins, good structure, and a long finish.
