Tumara 2002 Malbec (Stellenbosch)

Good fruit meets intense elefunkiness (my term for that Cape earthy element) in this even, mid-weight red. Black raspberry, licorice, toast, and asphalt notes play on the palate. But on the back end, full,spiky tannins and fierce funk prevail. Still, it's interesting, atypical, and feels like it may show improved focus and balance with a little age.
