Quite earthy and ripe, as tree bark, leather and prune make up the bouquet. The mouth is lively and snappy, with red fruit taking over and holding reign. Sheer, zesty and juicy describes the mouthfeel, while overall the wine delivers depth and integrity. Not overly complex but very good and straightforward.
A steady-as-she-goes type of Malbec with dark, heavy aromas and ripe berry and black cherry flavors. It’s a good wine with heft, ripeness and solidity, but it doesn’t sway much from the basic blueprint of average Mendocino Malbec. Expect size and extract more than refinement.
