A remarkably well-priced Malbec from Argentina. Smooth, full-bodied and offering generous aromas of concentrated, intensely flavoured black fruits with a lovely touch of mocha and smoke on the finish.
Malbec food pairings: hard cheese, beef, hamburgers, pasta in red sauce.

Reviews and Ratings
|Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This Malbec has aromas of blueberries, blackberries, pepper, chocolate and cedar. This is a very dry wine with dark chocolate and leather on the finish. This particular Malbec was aged in oak barrels for 15 months. Like other wines of this varietal it would pair well with a grilled steak or roast lamb.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby red, with lovely Damson plum aromas. Full plummy palate with touches of cedar and mocha. Well-balanced tannin, good structure. Great chocolatey finish.
|Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Ripe to dry black fruits with some animal and black pepper notes. Full body with intense black fruits notes. Lots of character and personality with sublime notes of barn and anis and menthol. Long finish
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Spicy, with lots of smoke and leather. The taste is spicy, with black and tart cherry and grippy tannins.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Nez assez typé de malbec, jolies notes de réglisse et de fruts noirs mais pas trop intense.
La bouche est plus sensuelle et veloutée.Il y a un petit peu de chaleur en fin de bouche,par contre.Intense et poivré, Ca demande une entrecôte au poivre, ou au moins des grillades.
Meaty and spicy, quite satisfying for the price! The alcohol does stand out a bit, but it is tasty. A crowd pleaser for your outdoor BBQ.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Cooked black berry fruit, vanilla, sweet sugar shack smoke, a little graphite, pepper and anise sticks out on the nose and palate. Smooth medium-light tannins, great acidity, medium+ body and med-long minty, leathery finish. A yummy wine with a wicked price tag. Enjoy with mesquite bbq.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Ripe blackberry, vanilla, sweet bbq smoke. Med-full body with good tannnins, berry and sweet smoke on the finish. Pair with Southern BBQ. Tasted March 2016.

|Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:|
Intense purple-red colour with ruby hues. Aromas of black fruit jam and liqueur, with an elegant touch of smoke, vanilla and chocolate. Sweet attack and full-bodied tannins. Long and pleasant finish.
