Natalie's Score: 90/100
Savoury and juicy and fleshy wild blackberry notes. Smooth and ready to drink when you are. Some attractive smoke, vanillin and toasty goodness from oak aging. Finishes with anise and blackberry. Try it with meat lovers' pizza tonight.
Malbec food pairings: lamb, spicy sausage, beef, meatloaf, pizza.
Luscious Lamb Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
This wine is great now but will be better insanely good in a few years time. It boasts aromas and flavours of blackberry and currant, crushed black plum, herb, warm spice and crushed rock. Hints of dried flower emerge after a few minutes in the glass. Drink 2018-2025. 92 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Gorgeous deep purple in colour, right through to the rim. Dark plum, vanilla, blueberry, sweet earth and violet are found on the nose. Full and luscious, dark fruit, floral, oak and vanilla on the palate. Would pair nicely with medium-rare meat dishes. Tasted March 2016.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tasted in April 2016 with other wines from Argentina - this wine was my favourite. Opaque in colour. Full body with lots of dark fruit and spice on the nose. Medium tannins with blackberry, plum and milk chocolate flavours. Pair with pot roast or smoked pork or any kind of grilled meat.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dark garnet with lovely Damson plum and cassis aromas. Juicy palate of ripe Damson plums, vanilla, cinnamon and oak. Mouth-watering acidity with long spicy plum finish.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely luscious fresh berry, dark chocolate and black currant infused with subtle vanilla and spice notes. Full-bodied with firm but fine tannins. Keep a few on hand for bbq season.
|Produced by Viña Santa Carolina, this satisfying and robust Argentine red wine offers black fruit and dark spice flavours. The vines for this robust Argentine red wine are planted in the upper Uco Valley at the foot of the Andes Mountains, planted 1,200 feet above sea level, where the soil conceals ammonite sea fossils and there's an extreme microclimate. - Community Wine Reviews|
