Dark and brooding with dusty blackberries and black cherry. Acidity slightly higher than I wanted in this wine but came into perfect harmony with a quickly prepared snack of crackers, cheese and ham.

On the nose, tobacco, cedar, mocha, black pepper and cherry notes. On the palate it's a mix of black cherry, red rasberry, spices and tobacco with a silky tannins, a medium body month feel and medium acidity.

Very warm and smooth. Great traditional Malbec boldness with great taste in the tongue.
