The Malbec is a striking deep, brilliant purple color. The nose is ripe and full, reminiscent of dark cherries, plums, and chocolate with undertones of loam and earth. In the mouth, the wine displays a profound core of ripe, blackberry jam fruit, lengthening into a sophisticated weighty finish coupled with an elegant silkiness. This is a rich and complex Malbec with an outstanding elegance and good structure. It is often referred to as "a Malbec for grown-ups."

Fennel and licorice aromas quickly give way to more dominant raspberry and black plum scents, while this feels plump, jammy and a touch soft on the palate. Grapy black fruit flavors are friendly, while this tastes of mulled blackberry on a ripe, easy finish.

This offers a lively mix of crushed red plum and dried berry flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. Minerally notes and forest floor accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made, 50 cases imported.
