This opens with mostly toast and barrel char, but airing allows chocolate and spice aromas into play. This Malbec feels tight, stout and chewy, with fresh acidity and firm tannins. Black-fruit flavors are toasty all the way to a peppery spicy finish. Drink through 2021.
I am not a well rounded wine enthusiast, but I am a huge fan of Malbec. I really only drink Malbec on a regular basis. I've tried every Malbec with a 90 rating or above that I can get my hands on and this vintage is my absolute favorite; I rated it a 95 and not higher only because I'm an optimist and want to believe that I can find even better. Goes well with steak, chocolate, cheese and Italian red sauce. It may go well with other foods...let me know.
