Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Malbec from Trapiche is impressive. It opens with a mild blackberry and dark chocolate bouquet with hints of black cherry and black tea. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is a blackberry and stewed black plum blend with notes of stony minerality and black licorice. I also detected hints of cola, black currant, and spice drop. The finish is dry and its flavors and refined tannins drift away nicely. I would drink this Malbec in near term with a Brazilian fire roasted beef alcatra. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A deep garnet Malbec, offering aromas of red berries like cherries and black currants as well as intense balsamic notes that evoke fresh herbs. Sweet and ample on the attack, it reveals great fruit concentration together with soft and ripe tannins. A lengthy, persistent, and elegant finish. Pair with red meats, game, hard cheeses and charcuterie.
