Malbec

Tasting Notes

Blackberry blossom and forest floor aromatics introduce a wine bursting with black cherry and dark plum flavors. Very soft and silky tannins combine with bright acids and a perceived sweetness resulting in a balanced and food-friendly wine. This Malbec finishes with currant, hints of vanilla and a slight smokiness.
