Wine Review: This really dark ruby colored Malbec based blend from Santa Julia is a very good value. It opens with a dark berry and gentle oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, soft and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty plum and black cherry blend with hints of faint oak. The finish is dry and subtle. This wine goes down easy with no edges at all. It is a perfect quaffer to enjoy with a grilled burger after work. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Red violet with good intensity
Aroma: Complex nose with Malbec – a bouquet of plums, cherries & jam expressing both spicy and vanilla notes, blending wonderfully with blueberry and violet aromas of the Cabernet Franc.
Flavor: In the mouth, Cabernet Franc adds dark fruit & spice to the velvet tannins and rich Malbec flavor, making a perfect combination that results in a complex, elegant wine of great concentration.
