Enjoyed this Malbec with roasted carrots. Will always choose a cab but liked this more than I thought I would

Refined #ucovalley #malbec - Somewhat restrained dark fruit aromas backed by leather and earthy notes. Balanced fruit and acid channel into velvety tannins - this set off well with short rib ravioli.

Lucious and velvety goodness. Paired with a ribeye steak or by itself.

Muito bom vinho, frutado, taninos leves... aroma com notas de canela.

A pedestrian commercial wine masquerading as a fine wine. The wine is dead and offers very little sense of involvement and conviction. It is “restrained” because there is very little material to restrain.
