Opens with jammy aromas but it’s also stewed and stalky. The palate is resiny and tannic, which means it’s grabby. Tastes a bit leafy and burnt, with spiced, roasted red plum flavors. Offers mostly oak spice and heat on the finish.
Butterscotch, roast corn and a general aromatic flatness don’t really bring you in, but the flavors of pear and peach are adequate, and the palate has some acidic kick to it. Mouthfeel and flavorwise, the wine is fine, but it has no complexity, character or pedigree to it.
Sweet and reduced aromas of red licorice and prune lead to sketchy red cherry flavors and not much body. The wine is closed, hard and chewy, but with a lot of fruit-forward potency.
This wine defines overripe but palatable Malbec. The nose is raisiny and heavy, but not very powerful. In the mouth, it runs soft and flat, with sweet, thick flavors of cola, raisin and baked out berry. Chunky and chewy on the finish.
An organic wine that is rough and oily on the nose and tannic and choppy in the mouth. It’s a hard, wine with sweaty, sharp scents and too much black olive and funk. Not a disaster but it requires an awful lot from the buyer.
