2008 Graffigna Malbec Grand Reserve
The 2008 Graffigna Grand Reserve Malbec is deep violet red with purple hues. It is very aromatic, with typical plum notes combined with chocolate and toasted notes from the oak aging. The palate is sensual and lively, with sweet ripe tannins, good structure, great balance and a long aftertaste. This is an ideal companion for lamb, grilled beef, ragouts, poultry or wild birds.

User Tasting Note
KrommerStrong but pleasant peppery notes on the nose. Dark red fruit flavors with hints of chocolate and coffee. A strong bitterness unbalanced acidity ruined the taste.
