(2012 Vintage) The 2012 Oak Cask Malbec has an intense red colour with violet hints. The wine shows sweet aromas of blackberry and plum with a touch of black pepper, an elegant touch of smoke and vanilla comes from the oak aging. There is a velvety texture, soft tannins and long finish.
Smooth smell, plummy scent. Velvety. Tastes slightly of vanilla and there is a light smoke. After reading the bottle: it says peppercorn. I taste a lighter pepper flavor, closer to Turmeric.
Pretty good malbec, not too special, solid tho
Not heavy tanins but good with hearty food
Rough on the mouth.
Basic good Malbec
