Wine Review: This 100% Malbec reminds me of a solid high end Zinfandel. It is opaque and very dark purple colored. It opens with a very mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, fruit forward and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild black raspberry with nicely integrated oak with hints of plum and spice. The finish is dry and its fruit forward flavors and mild tannins fade away nicely. I would pair this tasty wine with Mr. P’s barbecue brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a wine of great concentration, with intense violet, red color. An immense amount of red fruits, violets, tobacco, vanilla, spices, smoked notes and firm, but gentle, tannins in the nose and mouth give the wine its own unique personality. The characteristic silkiness of the Malbec is most prominent and the intense palate gives way to a long, lingering finish.
