There is an intense plum and black cherry that moves into a hint of roasted pepper and pickling spice.
The palate is dry, the tannins are integrated, and this wine is way too easy to drink. Have this on any day ending in y.
This wine is exactly what appassimento smells like to me; stewed red and black fruit, kiln dried tobacco, molasses, and a lot of spices and herbs.
Ripe red and blue fruit, almost Zinfandel in character, with a touch of pipe tobacco and roasted dill.
The palate is dry and powerful, but the fruit comes through on the front, finishing with a tannic grip, smoothed out by vanilla and baking spice.
I am falling in love with Malbec. The fruit wants to dominate the aromatic profile, even with oak.
This is Pinot Noir proper, dancing between the old world and new. Ripe cherry, cranberry, and roasted beet notes with the slightest bit of vanilla in the background.
