Wine Review: This very dark garnet colored Malbec from Trapiche opens with a green olive and black currant bouquet with hints of cocoa. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is fresh, zesty, and a bit rustic. The flavor profile is a stone dust and extracted blackberry blend with notes of currant and oak. I also detected black tea and black olive. The finish is very dry, and its dusty tannins stick around for a very long time. This Malbec would pair well with beef burrito with black beans. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense purple with violet tones. Concentrated aromas of red berries, plums, cherries, and raisins, highlighted by notes of toast, coconut, and vanilla from aging in new French oak barrels. In the mouth the wine reveals its best attributes with a sweet entry, soft and intense tannins that give creaminess, volume, and meatiness. The flavors of ripe fruit stand perfectly amalgamated with spicy and smoky wood, leaving a pleasant and persistent finish.
