Wine Review: This very dark purple colored Malbec is a pleasant everyday option. It opens with a mild oak and faint blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a gentle oak and plum combination with a hint of black cherry. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are sticky and linger for a while. This very affordable Malbec is a perfect burger wine. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense red color with violet hints. The wine shows sweet aromas of blackberry and plum with a touch of black pepper, an elegant touch of smoke and vanilla comes from the oak aging. There is a velevety texture, soft tannins and long finish.
