    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of freshly crushed black cherries and toasty/smoky oak—just enough to frame the exuberant fruit. On the palate, the flavors of cherries and spice are obvious, and the jammy fruit quality just keeps coming on strong, with hints of spice and sandalwood lurking in the background. This is a wine that you'll want to buy by the case because it can be consumed at almost any occasion, whether at a fancy dinner party, or just curled up on the couch in front of a movie. Fun and delicious—what more can you ask for?!

    Critical Acclaim:

    This dark, dense red offers concentrated notes of wild berry compote, fig paste and plum skin framed by hints of spice, violet and graphite on the finish. Drink now. 45,000 cases imported.

    With vibrant black cherry flavors and violet scents, this shines with fresh, juicy acidity. It's a malbec with some crunch to its structure. For beef empanadas.

    The 2010 Malbec contains 5% Bonarda in its blend. It spent 9 months in 50% new French and American oak. Notes of balsam wood, smoke, black cherry, and spice box lead to a similarly styled wine that comes off as just a bit too lean. Again, the flavors are pleasant, but it should be drunk over the next several years while it retains its fruit.
