A classic representation of a Malbec with a strong full body with dark red fruit flavors and strong but balanced tannins through out the taste.

Description

The Good Stuff

The nice balanced body and tannins make it a really smooth malbec to drink without feeling watered down or lack-luster.
The price point for this delicious wine is very hard to argue with.

The Bad Stuff

The wine definitely needs some air to open up the flavors, but give it a couple swirls or use an aerator and you’ll be good to go. Apart from that we struggled to find flaws with this malbec (or flaws other people have written about this wine.)

Wine Critics

Gorgeous nose exhibiting an array of aromas such as peppery mulberry, sour and black cherry, violet and a subtle touch of wild strawberry jam. The palate is full, complex, with a fantastic energy and bursting with ripe dark plums; tannins are impressively silky and freshness is amazing. An exceptional nectar from the Agrelo terroir. – Decanter Magazine

Funky and smoky dark blackberry aromas with dark loamy earth notes. Ripe mixed berry and blueberry on the palate, dark and rich on entry but thinning towards the finish and imparting a hint of spice. – Snooth.com

Additional information

Flavor Profile

Expect a full flavored malbec that has a smooth finish to it. The bouquet when you get a smell is of red fruits and espresso. When you take a sip it has a balance of body and tannins to create a lush mouth feel with a finish that sticks around and slowly fades with an oaky flavor about it

Wine Pairings

When trying to pair this wine you need a robust meal to stand up to these flavors, like steak or BBQ. We found a great recipe for a mushroom, onion and swiss burger on tideandthyme.com that balances those tannins of the malbec with the mildness of the swiss and the Worcestershire that’s worked into the patty. Add some sweet potato fries for the side and you’ll have a phenomenal night. http://tideandthyme.com/mushroom-onion-swiss-burger/
