International Wine CellarBright ruby-red. Lively aromas of black raspberry, mocha, leather and licorice, lifted by a violet topnote. A juicy, food-friendly style, with a firm shape and a tight grain to its flavors of redcurrant, tobacco and fresh herbs. Nothing over the top or exotic about this malbec. Finishes with good length and a hint of menthol.
