Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Malbec opens with a wet stone and dried cranberry bouquet with hints of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is mild mineral influenced plum with notes of oak and craisin. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger nicely. This good value Malbec would pair well with a carnitas taco. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark violet with blue hues. Nose of ripe red and black fruits such as cherries, plums, and blackberries. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and snuff. Medium-bodied flavor, with soft tannins and balanced acidity with a fruity and spicy finish.
