Concentrated and powerful with polished tannins. A lively Malbec with intriguing aromas of black raspberry, bacon and vanilla smoke. Ready to drink now, but will also do well with a few years in the cellar. Absolutely delicious especially at this price! Pair this wine with a variety of savoury eat dishes. Let your mouth have some fun tonight!

Reviews and Ratings

Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Named for the palm trees planted to commemorate an 'Oasis in the Desert'.
This 100% Malbec displays big bold flavours of berries and red cherries, super juicy on the palate. The tannins are smooth and velvety. Outstanding wine and amazing value.
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This delicious, smooth Malbec offers great value. Aromas of ripe berry and smoked wood greet the nose while chocolate and fruit fill the palate. We enjoyed it with a juicy grilled lamb burger.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Named for the palm trees that line the vineyard, this is a flavourful and full bodied Malbec. There is a lot of ripe plum and dark fruit on the nose, with a bit of a sweet note. The tannins are structured but not overpowering. A nice hint of mint comes through on the palate mingled with rich plum and brighter cherry flavours. Nice acidity to balance the body and tannin. Delicious. Enjoy with grilled steak with chimichurri sauce.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

It's a big wine! Black fruits, oak, plum aromas. Rich texture, medium body, medium(+) tannin.
This is a very dark and broody, full-bodied Malbec, but with lively acidity and fruit on the palate. The wine was aged 18 months in French, and Eastern European oak barrels.- Community Wine Reviews
