    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense purple color with shades of violet. Heady aromas of kirsch, cocoa, mint and exotic woods make you want to keep inhaling deeply. Red & black cherry flavors coat the palate, and the oak tannins frame the intense fruit flavors, keeping them from taking over the place! This Malbec is as good on the second day as it is on the first—if you can avoid finishing it! It is a great example of "cool weather" Malbec—it has all the spicy/fruity character of the grape, but it also has a deeper, more serious side.

    Best with meats such as pork (grilled or roasted loin), grilled hamburgers or steaks, and lamb prepared any way you like. Good with goat, too.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A superflashy style, boasting lots of melted licorice, fruitcake, fig paste and black currant preserve flavors, which all stay pure and focused on the creamy, lengthy finish. A hedonist's delight. Drink now. 2,800 cases imported.

    Fragrant black cherry and black raspberry, oak in background, touch of balsamic, lots of fruit.

    Very nice wine; benefits greatly from several hours of airing time, or decanting.
