This is a relatively inexpensive and widely distributed Malbec that show up on a lot of wine lists. I prefer their Syrah but the Malbec is functional and not a bad choice when looking to not spend a lot of money. Purple in color. The nose is dusty with some plums and a bit of sweet alcohol. On the palate, the plums come thru with some black cherry notes. It is a touch warm. Nice finish. Works well with pastas, meat and pizza. These drink well for about five years from vintage.
