(2013 Vintage) This luminous cherry coloured Malbec with pink hues offers a delicate bouquet of redcurrant, minty blackberry leaves and tenuous smoky notes. Aromas of passion fruit, accompanied by gentle white pepper follow. The palate is light bodied, silky with very delicate tannins, along with mango and plum notes. On the finish, sweet spices and dried herbs linger with a natural acidity.
March 2011: Very tannic. Not much to smell either. I'm going to hope that the next bottle is something different. Drinking by itself for now.
Tomei no Taypa!
