Tasting Notes

Black plum, tanned leather and dark chocolate aromatics fold into mixed berry pie and dusty earth flavors. This medium to heavy bodied Malbec boasts balanced alcohol and acidity while toasted almonds, caramelized sugar and blackberry jam swirl on the finish.

Sleek and expressive, light-footed but brimming with plum, spice and savory herb flavors, coming together with polish on the long, open-weave finish. - HS

"Soft and inviting, brimming with plum and currant fruit, with a major hit of black pepper, this comes together deftly as the finish lingers beautifully on the open texture."- HS

"Polished, refreshing and appealing for its chamomile and floral overtones, around a silky core of spiced berry and mixed flavors, lingering easily. Drink now to 2016." -HS
