Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Full bright ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice, mint, menthol and musky tobacco, plus an exotic suggestion of white fruit; almost a porty suggestion here. Sweet, lush and silky, with a layered texture to the intense plum and chocolatey oak flavors. As seamless and creamy as this is, it also boasts a high pitch and a brisk quality. Finishes with suave, dusty tannins and a whiplash of fruit. Drink this now or over the next several years.

    Highly rated Malbec. Purchased @ Costco for $16. I wasn't terribly impressed per the reviews. I expected more body. Aging may help, but there are too many great Malbecs from this region too not try first before purchasing quanity for the cellar.
