A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two — then the wine takes on a velvety yet still very direct quality.
Flowery and perfumed peppery black fruit nose. Ripe red fruit, toast, pencil shaving notes and sweet spice on a vibrant, juicy and full-bodied palate.
