(2010 Vintage) Visual Ruby with violet reflections.Olfactory Intense, red fruit with notes of spices, pepper, chocolate and vanilla.Palate Structured, balanced, ripe tannins, notes of red fruits and spices.
Interesting wine. There is a slight brick red color showing it's maturity. This wine is 75% Malbec and the rest a mixture of lesser grape varieties. Because of this, it gives the wine a bit more complexity. I enjoyed taking in the nose and the myriad of different aromas such as violets, berry. Some soft tannins are there and the different flavors have blended together nicely. The blend of grapes as complexity and not one dimensional as so many Malbecs can be. It is a dry wine with berry, cherry, spice and plum tastes. The finish left my mouth slightly puckered, my glass empty and me wanting another glass.
