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.
Made by two legends of Mendoza--Jose Galante (Catena) and Mariano di Paola (Rutini)--this Malbec hints at coffee and dried sour cherries, with high notes of strawberries, spices and leather over a thick cushion of tannins. Deliciously juicy.
