Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, menthol and pepper. A step up in concentration and density from the 2013 tempranillo, showing good cut and intensity to its youthful flavors of blackberry, menthol and pepper. Tannins are firm but not dry and the lingering finish shows a slightly edgy herbal quality.

AGREE with notes particularly the "ripe black fruits and licorice".."Great Malbec @ ...price."
Bang for the Buck
Wine access hit the nail on the head. Price point, description of the wine, the only problem is I didn't order two cases! My Bar-B-Q wine for the summer!
Heavy Hitter needs food
Intense wine with deep flavors but requires rich food to fully enjoy. Decent value.
