Wine Review: A new look to the Susana Balbo label for this vintage, this medium purple colored Malbec has dark cherry, raspberry, violet florals, and a hint of cigar box on the nose. On the palate it is balanced, fresh and tasty, with a medium plus body and medium plus acidity. Nicely blended flavors of plum, vanilla, black pepper, with some dark cherry and spice notes. There are moderate firm tannins in an extended smooth finish. This would pair well with grilled butterflied lamb. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: A fresh, pure expression of the varietal, with aromas of violets, cherries, mocha and spice. Juicy tannins and balanced acidity complement perfectly ripe red fruit flavors, while a subtle hint of oak adds complexity.
