Wine Description

It offers this great malbec, complex and inviting with abundant fruit and ripe. The palate is soft and tasty with refreshing acidity. Deep dark cherry and blackberry flavors with hints of brown spice and vanilla.

    A great "go to" red for the price. Nice body and richness of flavor for all kinds of foods, especially grilled meats.

    Bold, bit of earthiness, very light acidity. Pretty decent for the $16 price.

    Don't bother. Thick with no layering. Not 'crisp, refreshing' in the least.

    (2005 Vintage) Shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
