Tasting Note

Adventure abounds in this intriguing Malbec. A dark purple-magenta color stains the glass. Steak tartar, mushroom, white pepper, black raspberry, black and red currants, rhubarb and plum rubs the nose. A rustic palate offers up mineral and earth, a hint of smoke, and medium tannins to flavors echoing the nose. Black raspberry and currants with a touch of umami provide a distinguished finish. Excellent with barbeque, bison and other grilled meats.  – Charles P. Reininger, Winemaker
