A deep ruby red color with an intense violet hue. The nose shows a perfect combination of potency and delicacy, with pronounced aromas of ripe red fruits such as sour cherries in syrup intermingled with a subtle fragrance of violets and wild flowers, while a touch of crème de cassis, jam, and anise appear on the backdrop to complete the aromatic profile characteristic of our Alpha Malbec. The generous palate has tremendous volume and a sensation of sweetness from aging in French oak barrels. The perfectly round tannins lend structure and a long, lingering finish. Food Pairing: This Malbec pairs very well with most red and white meats, although it has a special affinity with grilled pork and chicken, especially with barbecue sauce. It is also very good with beef stew, spicy beef, and Mexican mole dishes.

A saturated dark purple color and intense, rubbery aromas of herbal berry, graphite, tomato sauce and oak char lead to a plodding palate with a bulldozer feel. Charred black plum flavors rise up on the finish of this Malbec from a tough year for later-harvest red wines.
