Natalie's Score: 91/100

The cool nights high on the mountainside provide a lively, vibrant balance for this full-bodied wine that is redolent of blackberry and black cherry. Terrific smoky finish with a lingering note of dried herbs and wistfulness (for the next glass). Finishes with attractive black fruit and minerality. Polished tannins. Pair with prime rib.

Malbec food pairings: beef,  turkey, tomato sauces, hamburgers, spaghetti and meat balls.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Malbec has a deep, inky,ruby/purple colour with thick, slow moving legs. Medium(+) body with aromas and flavours of ripe dark cherry, sweet cigar, blueberry, bramble and baking spices. Long length on a fruit driven finish. Good acid to fruit ratio and a nicely crafted Malbec by Paul Hobbs. Tannins are firm and suggest decanting. Ticks the sub $20 box. Enjoy this with Argentinian style beef BBQ. This is a buy 2 wine!
Tasted: Januray 2016
The Malbec grapes for this elegant red wine are selected from several mountain vineyards in the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyon districts of the Mendoza wine region that are planted at altitudes of 2,300 and 3,800 feet above sea level. The cool nights high on the mountainside provide a lively, vibrant balance for this full-bodied wine that is redolent of blackberry and black cherry. This unfiltered Argentine red wine is produced by the renowned Californian winemaking consultant Paul Hobbs. - Community Wine Reviews
