Usually I think of Argentina for Malbecs, but this one is from Chile. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has plums, raspberries, char and spice. Great silky but lush texture. On the palate, more cherries than black raspberries, black cherries and plums with underlying car. Slight bitter cherries (in a good way on the finish). This is drinking great now and should last for another ten to twelve years. Drink on its own or with food, pork chops would be a nice match. Excellent value.
