Another keeper

Not quite up to the Tikal but a wonderful wine nonetheless.
Exceptional Malbec
by Groomes10736034
4/8/13 w/frineds Excellent!; 8/2/14 w/friends @ cookout, exceptional! needs 60 minutes to breathe. full body, long finish pairs well with grilled beef and chorizo.
What a great Malbec
by Mathieson11794789
Settling down nicely after a few months in the cellar, this is now our go-to mid-week wine. Just a delightful Malbec, and such great value.

Black currant nose with a little licorice, figs, herbs, and coffee. Concentrated and dense in the mouth with just enough acid to balance and a light dusting of very fine tannins. Shows black fruit in the mouth with a little coffee in an expressive way (not tight) but not sweet. Very good fruit in the mouth. Long finish of tangy rich fruit and a little black pepper. Great now, not sure if it will improve with age.

This is a very good wine regardless of the price, but, considering the price, it is REALLY excellent.
