Tasting Notes
Displays a rustic character of leather, earth, mushroom and spice reminiscent of traditional Malbec; perhaps it’s the maturity of the nine year old vines. Finely ground white and black pepper, dried fig, pomegranate, black currant with ripe blackberry flirting in the background satiates my palate along with hints of cocoa and vanilla beans, osso Boccu, braised lamb shanks, hearty stews, and rustic country vegetables are yearning for this Malbec.
