£20.79; 14.5%

Quite a classical Mendoza Malbec. Deep black, with a hint of purple at the narrow rim. Jammy bramble fruit with some pepper spice and herb notes, underpinned by espresso and oak spice. Hint of meat. Full-bodied, with some firmness of peppery, chalky tannin, moderate acidity and notable 14.5% ABV. Sweet black fruit flavour, with a spicy mid-palate. Powerful and ripe, but not overdone or over-heavy.
