Palate

This Malbec shows notes of blackberries, warm blueberry pancakes, and maraschino cherries while being intensely layered with baking spices of clove, cinnamon, sage, licorice, and cedar. Light hints of orange peel, eucalyptus, white powdered sugar and red velvet cake dance around the core. The wine finishes with integrated earth components of soil, dry crushed leaves, and an animal quality that screams being alive.
