Natalie's Score: 92/100

A lively Malbec with intriguing aromas of black raspberry, bacon and vanilla smoke. Concentrated and powerful with polished tannins. Ready to drink now, but will also do well with a few years in the cellar. Absolutely delicious especially at this price! This wine cries out to be on your table beside prime rib. Let your mouth have some fun tonight!

Malbec food pairings: marinated steaks, spicy dishes, tomato sauces, hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Dark garnet red with yummy Damson plums, vanilla and a touch of smoke on the nose. The palate shows Damson plums, vanilla, baking spice, cloves, cinnamon, smoke and oak, with a well-integrated, balanced mouthfeel and a long spiced plum finish. Excellent value.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red with a purple hue. Smoky dark berries, vanilla, and a flinty minerality. Mocha, dark chocolate, blackberry, and tar on the palate. A well integated wine that's smooth and well structured. Enjoy with medium-rare steak or aged cheddar. Tasted June 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:

Enjoyed an intense nose of fruit leaping from the glass. Deep ruby colour with slow moving legs. This full-bodied Malbec has tannins that take hold but a few years in the cellar will tame them. Fleshy black fruit, chocolate, leather, tar, bacon, sweet baking spices on the nose and palate. Good acid/ fruit/ alcohol balance. Good chocolate and sweet spice finish. Decant 2 hours if drinking now. Grilled red meats pair well. Good value.
Tasted: June 2015
A full-bodied Malbec and an iconic Argentine red wine that was aged 18 months in French, Hungarian and Eastern European oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
