A big improvement from the 2006, with happy aromas of berry, plum and cola. The palate isn't all that exciting, but it delivers requisite plum, berry and wild herb flavors. A slight creaminess to the finish confirms its weight and standing as a basic but good Malbec.
Good wine but a touch stemmy and burnt smelling. After the brushy, herbal aromas comes a juicy, crisp red fruit palate with raspberry and plum flavors but also a bit of green at the core. Finishes bold but a little hot and scratchy.
Simple spiced cherry aromas lead to a pinched but lively palate with tangy raspberry fruit. The finish is sort of rough and rugged, with sharper than ideal acidity and just enough texture to keep it moving along.
