2012 Malbec Cuvee
$48.00

Cuvée means “wine blend” in French. This Malbec Cuvée is has flavors of dark blackberries, mocha, and dark chocolate, surrounded by a bouquet of spice and with hints of cherries, vanilla and cedar. The oak influence is subdued. The focus is on the fruit. Deep and full bodied, it is complex, and perfectly balanced on the palate and exhibited great structure and length. Thanks to 3 ½ years of aging in the barrel, it has soft tannins and is ready to drink now and can be laid down for several years. It pairs well with beef stew, hamburgers and desserts with blackberries.
