Toasty yet ripe, showing ample mesquite and mocha notes to the raspberry ganache and rich plum fruit. Silky tannins line the dark, cream-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Malbec
Though Malbec is now widely known as a varietal wine made in Argentina, it is actually a French red-wine grape traditionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and others to produce Bordeaux wines. Ripe plum and blackberry define the nose. Tight tannins and an earthy, woody quality make Malbecs a great match for red meat. View all our additional Malbec items
Region :
Argentina
Wine lovers came to know Argentinean wines through an almost-forgotten grape from France: Malbec. In Mendoza, the center of Argentina's wine industry, sunny days, an arid climate and mountainous terrain create ideal growing conditions for Malbec to thrive. In addition to Malbec, Chardonnay and other noble grape varieties that flourish in Argentina, a little-known white grape called Torront├Ęs is gaining favor. Look for wines from producers like Bodegas Renacer, Don Miguel Gascon and Navarro Correas. View all our items from Argentina
