This is a truly delicious wine, worthy of accolades no matter its gulpability, made in a pretty off-pink color from 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot and aged six months in stainless steel. Tangy and crisp, it sings on the palate, an undeniable reward of watermelon and mandarin orange that's got meat on its tender bones.
