Wine Profile

Winemaker Notes
Bright red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate and violet; plenty of evidence of the malbec here. Then creamy and deep but with good energy and floral lift to the dark berry and licorice flavors. This big, broad, tactile wine finishes with firm, ripe, building tannins and noteworthy persistence. I find more malbec character than syrah today. This producer's least expensive red is also the most accessible today.
