Tasting Notes

This Malbec opens with aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, and baked vanilla that evolve into mint, violets, and chocolate-covered toffee. Smooth and full on the palate with a surprising intensity of flavor, including pomegranate, dark chocolate and orange zest. Beautiful and expressive, with perfectly balanced acidity and concentrated flavors.
