The uber-popular style of Malbec –oozing with milk chocolate softness– is just a single iteration of this grape’s possibilities.  This bottle will elevate your expectations.  Aromas of fresh basil and earl grey tea drift through red fruit. The palate is layered with fresh cherries, mint, and wildflowers. The finish opens into Asian five spice and vanilla.  An elegant bottle of Malbec that offers a balance of bright acid, angular tannins, and a velvet texture.
