Juicy and full-bodied with blackberry and black currant aromas wrapped up in some toasty oak, mocha and dark chocolate. Good acidity. Rich dark red hue with violet accents in the glass. Try it with a combination pizza or roast beef.

Malbec food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Mendoza Malbec has a subtle plum jam nose, followed by a plum jam palate that adds vanilla and touches of cinnamon, pepper and chocolate. Rich mouthfeel and a long jammy finish with a hint of mocha at the end.
This argentine red wine Reserva is made from grapes grown on 30 year old vines. Malbec is the flagship red wine of Argentina, and the proof is in the glass here. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
